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.
