PGCert - Māori and Indigenous Studies as a subject

Postgraduate certificates and diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree.

As Indigenous world views become increasingly important to society, a rapidly emerging area of study is Indigenous Studies. The Māori creative and performing arts papers diversify your existing program and provide unique insights into Māori tikanga.
