Ngā Ako Paerua (Postgraduate Studies)

Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao has an active research culture and is able to offer a number of postgraduate qualifications including supervision across a wide range of areas.

Postgraduate degrees offer students the opportunity to select a field of study that they are interested in and to develop their knowledge within this space. Graduate degrees equip students with specialized skills supporting them to become very knowledgeable within a particular field. This in turn increases students’ employment opportunities and their ability to develop their study into a career.

A significant component of the FMIS Postgraduate Studies programme is our Masters (MA, MMPD), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Dr of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. There are a number of approaches to completing a Masters through the school including a 120 point option from an honours degree or equivalent, or a 180 point option from a bachelor’s degree or equivalent. This programme is normally a one year full time programme or equivalent in part-time study. The MPhil and PhD programmes can be completed as a part-time or full-time programme. The full-time PhD programme is usually a three year research degree.

The Faculty staff who will supervise your study are recognised experts in the Indigenous space and their research extends into fields such as language revitalisation, resource management, health and intellectual property.
