Pacific Studies

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies was founded through a bequest from the late Professor John Macmillan Brown (1846-1935), a founding Professor of the University of Canterbury and a former Vice Chancellor of the University of New Zealand who spent a considerable time travelling and studying the countries of the Pacific. Under the terms of Professor Macmillan Brown's will, the Centre was established in 1988 at the University of Canterbury to facilitate the 'investigation and research of the history, traditions, customs, laws, and ideas of the peoples of the Pacific generally.'

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