Master of Arts under Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

Are you seeking the ability to think critically and communicate well? A Master of Arts (MA) from Waikato will teach you the skills to work independently and see a major project through to completion. These are characteristics that are highly sought after by employers.

Enrolling in a MA gives you the opportunity to engage in independent (but supervised) research in one or more of a wide range of Arts subjects. Graduating with an MA provides you with a gateway to a higher research degree or to a wide range of careers.

Master of Arts under Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies

The recognition of Māori as an official language of Aotearoa has been accompanied by an acknowledgement of tangata whenua issues within the community and society as a whole. The ability to be fluent in both Māori and English has become increasingly important within a number of professional areas. These areas include: Iwi/hapu development, Education, Medicine, Research, Media, Government and Travel and Tourism.

You can choose from the following subjects: Māori Language/Te Reo Māori, Maori Cultural Studies/Tikanga Māori, Māori Media and Communication.

Industry Connections

The programmes within the MA host networks and relationships with a diverse range of national and international industry bodies. These include, the wider education sector (particularly with secondary schools), linguistic and cultural groups, creative, theatrical and performing groups, embassies, government, business organisations, historical organisations, international organisations, and industrial and professional groups or organisations.

Music and Theatre Studies, for example, have links directly with the public at large through the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts. History has close links with the New Zealand Historical Association and English with Creative New Zealand and the Fulbright Foundation.

Career Opportunities

Our subjects equip MA graduates for specific careers. For instance, a Screen and Media Studies MA graduate might become a director or producer, a media relations adviser, a media research executive, a professional fundraiser, a public affairs specialist, a public relations consultant or a journalist. History MA graduates might become historians, museum curators, heritage researchers or work in community development (for instance, with tribal authorities). Foreign language MA graduates might work in the diplomatic service or become international marketing managers, trade commissioners, interpreters or translators – the possibilities are endless.

A Master of Social Sciences (MSocSc) builds on the Bachelors or Honours qualification you've already gained. When studying for your MSocSc, you'll focus on your preferred Social Science subject area and you'll immerse yourself in a high-level programme of study. You'll learn the latest research techniques and be updated on recent developments in knowledge relating to your chosen field.

You'll be preparing for a dissertation or thesis, so will be conducting a substantial amount of your own independent research. If you think you may want to complete a doctorate level qualification later on, completing a MSocSc prepares you for that next level of academic study.

As you grow your knowledge of your chosen subject area, you'll be refining your intellectual skills, particularly your ability to think critically, problem solve and analyse. This will enable you to prepare for leadership roles in fields related to your subject area.

Industry Connections

During your studies, you'll be supervised by well-connected Faculty members who have networks with people working in a wide range of sectors, from business to government.

These people, including representatives from local and central government and tribal authorities, provide input into the different subject areas. Members of community groups, business organisations and industrial and professional groups do the same – they provide valuable support and input. The subject area experts themselves provide consultancy services that the community in general needs, so there are broader links and connections made through this sharing of knowledge.

The Master of Māori and Pacific Development (MMPD) will take you through an advanced assessment of the underlying concepts and principles associated with social, cultural, political and economic development for indigenous peoples.

You'll explore approaches to solving problems in the theory and practice of indigenous development, and more so in the realms of Māori and Pacific Development.

You can be assured that you are studying with the best. Our lecturers remain at the coalface of global development challenges and discourses including the refugee crisis, climate change, environmental issues, economic development challenges, labour migration, sustainable development, poverty and illiteracy.

You'll be learning with those who are recognised as development practitioners in NZ, Pacific and internationally through their projects, networks and collaborations. This includes projects for UNESCO, ASPBAE (Asia South Pacific Association for Adult and Basic Education) and other civil society groups. Our staff are also working towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) as agreed upon by the United Nations in 2015.

Course Structure

Students should normally have qualified for the Postgraduate Diploma or its equivalent and have normally achieved a B+ or better.

180 Point Masters Requirements

To be admitted to the MMPD directly from a BMPD or BA, or equivalent, students will need to gain a high level of attainment in their relevant 300 level papers, normally an A-. This requirement, combined with the inclusion of an approved research methodology paper, will underpin successful completion of a significant research project of 60, 90, or 120 points.

This pathway involves one full calendar year or one and a half academic calendar years or its equivalent in part-time study. It comprises 180 points of which at least 60 points at 500 level from one subject must be taken, including an approved research methods paper, and any compulsory papers prescribed in the relevant subject. Students must take either a 120 point thesis, a 90 point thesis, or a 60 point dissertation.
