Looking for a short-term study option? A certificate can help pave your way to future success, and is equivalent to the first year of study of a bachelors degree. It's a great way to gain an introductory qualification in a field of study.
Learning about Māori culture, language and knowledge is not just for Māori; it is crucial for all New Zealanders and international visitors to comprehend how Aotearoa/New Zealand's unique Indigenous culture defines New Zealand's identity - it is a cultural, social, economic and political force.
Also learn how Māori Studies is located in the broader and global context of Indigenous Studies; a discipline that has flourished in the last decade as Indigenous scholars have confronted some of the major issues facing the world, such as efforts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Increasingly employees are looking for graduates who are trained in disciplines like law, science, engineering, or business, but who also have a knowledge of Māori and Indigenous Studies.
