Maori and Pacific Development (2018)

Maori and Pacific Development provides students with a critical understanding of the field of development and an introduction to some of the skills necessary for development practice. The core papers focus on the experiences of Maori, Pacific Islands and indigenous peoples in development. Maori and Pacific Development is a co-operative undergraduate programme which brings together expertise from a number of subjects. The programme includes a core of papers from Maori and Pacific Development and electives from Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Pacific Studies, Public Policy, Te Reo Maori and Tikanga Maori.

Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Maori and Pacific Development major, Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Faculty of Maori and Indigenous Studies for programme advice.
