A supervised research project of no more than 18,000 words (excluding notes, appendices, bibliography) on an approved topic.

The MIndS programme is offered to graduates interested in examining the issues affecting indigenous peoples, both in New Zealand and worldwide. It is a unique one-year (full-time) or two-year (part-time) programme offering students a life-altering educational opportunity that can lead to an extraordinary range of career opportunities. In many countries there is an increasing accountability and concern for the needs of indigenous peoples. As a result, those with skills and experience in this area are increasingly sought after. The knowledge gained in this programme can be applied in many international contexts.
