Why study Kaupapa Māori Psychology?

Kaupapa Māori Psychology, offered as a minor, uses Māori worldviews alongside psychological theories, methods and models in real world contexts where Māori livelihoods are impacted.

Students will have the opportunity to develop specialised knowledge relating to national, regional and international indigenous psychology issues in the contemporary world and of the complex and inter-related nature of those issues as they pertain to Māori, culture and land, to the Treaty itself, and to indigenous peoples.
