Poutuarongo Mātauranga Māori

Bachelor of Mātauranga Māori

Studies in Mātauranga Māori will introduce you to understandings of human behaviour based on concepts handed down through generations of Māori. Te whakamāramatanga o ngā tikanga tuku iho e puta ai te titiro a te Māori ki tōna ao. Learn about kaupapa and tikanga Māori that define the way we view the world as Māori. Explore Māori knowledge as our tūpuna understood it, as we understand it today and as it will be applied tomorrow.

The Heke Mātauranga Māori examines ngā tikanga tuku iho, Māori art and design concepts, iwi oral traditions and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. You will undertake research about your marae and develop your te reo Māori skills, including mihimihi, waiata and karakia.

The Heke Awa, Raukawa and Toarangatira-tanga is a tailored programme specific to mātauranga Māori of the founding iwi of Te Wānanga o Raukawa, Te Ati Awa ki Whakarongotai, Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga and Ngāti Toa Rangatira.

Years two and three of the Poutuarongo Mātauranga Māori expand further on ngā taonga tuku iho and incorporate more indepth studies in kaitiakitanga, tohungatanga, roles on the marae, paepae and science and technology in the mātauranga Māori context.
