Te Ara Poutama: Māori and indigenous development

Our Māori media, Māori development and te reo qualifications are at the cutting edge. Our programmes have been developed in response to the need for skilled Māori professionals in the fast-growing business and media sectors.

We are a community – and we live out the idea of whakapakari, which means to discover, evolve and grow.

Postgraduate study in Māori and indigenous development will build on your knowledge and expertise in your area of interest.

A short course will develop your skills and knowledge in an area of personal or professional interest.

Research in Māori and indigenous development

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across Māori and indigenous development.
