This course will prepare students to carry out original research by an exploration of methods and epistemologies of research across Arts disciplines, including Kaupapa Ma?ori approaches. It will provide students with a broad suite of essential postgraduate research skills, with a particular emphasis on research methods common to the humanities and social sciences. It will have a strongly practical focus.

Arts 401 will prepare you to carry out original research in your own discipline and across disciplines. We will introduce you to epistemologies and methods used in research and scholarship in the Arts, to give you the tools to start your own research at Honours and Masters level. You’ll get a chance to test, assess, and practice different methods. You will work collaboratively and individually to explore the possibilities different methods offer for your discipline and areas of research. We’ll also engage with Kaupapa Māori research, human ethics, and the research support offered by the UC Library, including the Macmillan Brown Library.
