Pacific and Indigenous Studies (2018)

Pacific and Indigenous Studies provides students the opportunity to develop a depth of expertise in Pacific and Indigenous Studies, whilst also enabling expansion of that knowledge within a broader context, by allowing the flexibility for students to complete a range of papers from within the Maori and Indigenous Studies, Arts and Social Science fields, as well as electives from other Faculties. The Major focuses on concepts such as method, culture, critical thought, sustainability and identity and, thus, will be underpinned by integrity, including ethical standards, self-reflection and the will of graduates to apply such knowledge for the wider benefit of Pacific communities in Aotearoa/New Zealand, and other Pacific nations.

Pacific and Indigenous Studies is available as a major for the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Social Sciences. Pacific and Indigenous Studies may also be included as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to the approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.
