Program Description:

Top Programmes, Magic Location.

The academic study of Maori language and society has become an increasingly popular degree option as a result of changing government policy and social attitudes. Careers have opened up in areas such as teaching, library work, law, research, iwi organisations, policy analysis and in the service delivery areas of government, local body and private organisations. Maori is also relevant to other subjects such as history, sociology, political science, English, education, law and religious studies, but because of its special role in expressing New Zealand identity, it can strengthen any degree which trains you for a career in dealing with people and culture.

Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
