Congratulations on gaining your BA, and welcome to the graduate programme at Aotahi: School of Māori and Indigenous Studies.
Flexible course choices
If you do not want to take four papers in one year, or have subject interests in other disciplines, you may take one or two papers in another school, provided your programme is approved by the Head of School.
'Special Topics' are unnamed courses which are organised if there are groups of students wishing to pursue an area of study not covered in the existing graduate courses.
Each paper in society or language will be taught in one two-hour class per week at times to be arranged; modern language papers may require more contact time. Contact the school to find out when.
The basic entry criteria to postgraduate study is that you have a Bachelor's degree with a major in Māori and Indigenous Studies or Te Reo Maori with at least a B+ average in 60 points at 300-level. Other entry criteria apply for those entering with different qualifications. Contact the School for more information.
You have several options of study at postgraduate level. The BA(Hons) can lead into a Master of Arts if you wish. Or you can study for a Master of Māori and Indigenous Studies or a Master of Te Reo Māori.
The BA(Hons) is a one-year full-time degree, but you can also study part-time. You need to pass a total of four courses.
Māori and Indigenous Studies: Three courses from MAOR403-425 and one of MAOR480-482. With approval of the Head of School students may include two courses from other subjects. Explore our courses in more detail.
After competing your Honours degree you can continue your study at Masters level.
