Tauwhitinga Māori: Māori Communication Strategy and Practice

  • Tauwhitinga Māori: Māori Communication Strategy and Practice

Qualifications

Overview

As Aotearoa New Zealand looks to increase awareness of our Māori culture and heritage, there is a growing need in many different industries for graduates with advanced bicultural communications expertise. This major is ideal for anyone looking to bring about social change, and help industries engage more strongly with our bicultural nation.

This is the only major of its kind in Aotearoa New Zealand on Māori communication strategy, which looks to develop graduates with knowledge in implementing tikanga and kaupapa Māori into professional corporate scenarios, collaboration and consultation with local iwi, the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi the Treaty of Waitangi, and in ethical practices in the creative media industry.

The Bachelor of Communication has a strong practical emphasis, and students will have opportunities to manage creative, work-oriented projects or complete a supervised internship in a local organisation looking to engage with Māori communities.
