Study Māori Studies at Otago

Overview

Tēnei te mihi atu ki a koutou i roto i ngā tini āhuatanga o te wā.

Māori Studies is an intellectual discipline within the University, with an academic programme dedicated to the study of te reo me ngā tikanga Māori (the Māori language, Māori customary lore, Māori history, Māori performing arts, Māori education and Māori research) in Aotearoa and Te Waipounamu. The introduction of an immersion Māori language programme from 100- to 400-level based on the Te Whanake series by Professor John C. Moorfield provides a strong foundation for the multidisciplinary offerings of papers which constitute our curriculum.

Māori Studies is an entry point for students and scholars wishing to engage with knowledge about Māori.
