Master's Degree Programmes

Māori & Indigenous Studies

The master’s degrees provide a friendly and supportive learning environment for students through the (mostly) noho delivery model. After completing a minimum of four papers either part time or full time, students opt for either a dissertation or thesis. This is the exciting time in a master’s degree where students are often completing research on a topic close to their hearts – it might be to do with their hapū or iwi; the school they teach in; or a social service, health or community problem. Alternatively, your thesis might be about a business, economic, art or environmental interest.

Every year an increasing number of our students also choose to write their thesis in te reo Māori. This is expanding the depth and breadth of Māori literature across all subjects – in te reo.

While we currently offer just the two master’s degrees (Master of Māori Studies and Master of Indigenous Studies), there are 8 thesis options available. These enable students to study and research fields such as Māori Studies, Science, Māori Performing Arts, Business, Health, Creative Arts, Indigenous Studies and Education.
