You have many opportunities to collaborate, apply your knowledge and test new technologies. This major is flexible and offers a wide range of choices to tailor your qualification to your needs and aspirations.
This degree will equip you with the theory and skills to perform in a wide range of career options, including:
AUT encourages early application. This qualification will remain open until all places have been filled.

Students undertaking the Bachelor of Māori Development may choose a second major from the list of additional majors available from outside their degree. Minors are also available in these subjects.
The availability of additional majors and minors will depend on timetabling and subject restrictions, and in some cases, choosing an additional major or minor may require students to undertake extra points to complete their degree.
Today, standing out from the crowd is more important than ever. Having skills in more than one discipline can give you the competitive edge and increase your career opportunities. Studying a conjoint programme, a double degree or including a second major or a minor in your degree is a great way to develop skills in different fields.
Your study options include:
You can also combine your Bachelor of Arts in Māori Development with a second major (either from the Bachelor of Arts or from another AUT degree) or a minor.
