Graduate and Postgraduate Study
We welcome all graduate and postgraduate students who intend to study in the Faculty, whether your undergraduate degree was taken at The University of Waikato or whether you completed your first degree at another tertiary institution. We welcome those of you who are returning to study at graduate, drawing upon your own experiences of work, parenthood, or travel for inspiration in your studies. We welcome with special warmth graduate and postgraduate students from other countries: you bring to the Faculty cosmopolitan qualities and remind us that the transmission and creation of knowledge is an international activity.
The possibilities for graduate and postgraduate study in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences are extensive. We encourage our own graduates to pursue further study in their disciplines and we welcome enquiries from graduates of other universities.
Our academic staff are leading experts in their respective fields, and are widely published in top academic journals and in print. Academic staff are able to meet and correspond with students on matters relating to their expertise and interests, and can supervise student research in those fields.
Students should begin planning graduate study early in order to make adequate preparations. You must obtain agreement to your programme of study from the relevant department. This may take several days after you have submitted your Application to Enrol (ATE).
