About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Paetahi Tumu Korero Bachelor of Counselling programme features both Maori centred and western theory and models of counselling practice. A Maori centred specialisation option will provide a unique opportunity for students to build on this foundation and further develop skills and knowledge in Maori counselling, tikanga and te reo. The Programme draws from a range of theories including indigenous, modernist and postmodernist perspectives and approaches to create a programme where both Maori centered and western theory models of counselling are featured; enabling graduates to be work ready in a bicultural context. All graduates will be work-ready: competent and confident to work within both tangata whenua and tangata tiriti counselling and social service environments
