Te Kawa a Māui - The School of Māori Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, specialises in teaching and research on the Māori and Indigenous worlds. Together with Te Herenga Waka Marae our programmes, staff and students form the hub of a vibrant and active Māori community at the University. Our courses, majors and programmes are taught within the degrees administered by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Te Kawa a Māui is also an integral part of Toihuarewa - the Māori Faculty at Victoria.
Employment opportunities have increased in recent years due to an increasing demand for proficiency in Māori culture and language. This edition of Career View, produced by Vic Careers, profiles Māori Studies and how the discipline relates to career opportunities for graduates.
