Tauwhitinga Māori

  • Tauwhitinga Māori: Māori Communication Strategy and Practice



As Aotearoa looks to increase awareness of our Māori culture and heritage, there is a growing need in many different industries for graduates with advanced bicultural communications expertise. This major is ideal for anyone looking to bring about social change, and help industries engage more strongly with our bicultural nation.

This is the only major of its kind in Aotearoa on Māori communication strategy. This develops graduates with knowledge in implementing tikanga and kaupapa Māori into professional corporate scenarios, collaboration and consultation with local iwi, the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi Treaty of Waitangi, and in ethical practices in the creative media industry.

The Bachelor of Communication has a strong practical emphasis, and students will have opportunities to manage creative work-oriented projects, or complete a supervised internship in a local organisation looking to engage with Māori communities.
