About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The aim of the Bachelor of Māori Advancement is to advance global well-being through self-determination, intellectual sovereignty and contributions of consequence to iwi, hapū, whānau and self. The qualification equips tauira with culturally relevant practices that advance mātauranga Māori. In doing so, it provides a framework for engaging with the bodies of knowledge and theories that are critical to the understanding of the fields covered in this degree.
