Summary

Further your study and enhance you career potential with advanced courses and supervised research alongside some of New Zealand’s leading scholars.

Programme overview

You can take the one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) as a qualification in its own right after a Bachelor of Arts or as a pathway to a one-year Master of Arts

The BA(Hons) is an opportunity to extend your understanding of an academic area that you find intellectually rewarding and personally meaningful. You may also be able to study an area different to that of your undergraduate major if your background is in a related subject.

As well as deepening your knowledge in small classes with some of New Zealand’s leading scholars, you can hone advanced skills that will be an advantage in any career.

Semester Two admission may not be available for some subjects.

Education

Education focuses on teaching methodology based on the theory and practice of how people learn. It can be studied as part of a teaching qualification or within an Arts degree.

Education is broadly the study of learning and teaching at all stages of people's lives. It includes the history, sociology, philosophy, politics and psychology of education and teacher preparation.

Studying Education as a teaching qualification equips you with the knowledge and skills to be an excellent teacher. It covers a wide range of topics, including the theory and context of education, philosophy and ethics, the New Zealand curriculum, teaching specific subjects, and assessment.

You can specialise in Early Childhood Education, Primary or Secondary teaching, Huarahi Maori (Maori-medium teaching), teaching Sport, Health and Physical Education, or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages in schools.

The BA pathway offers courses covering theory and research across a wide variety of areas, ranging from child and adolescent development to treaty politics in education. If you then decide you want to enter teaching as a profession, you can add on a one-year teaching qualification. Our graduates are in high demand. We are New Zealand’s top ranked university for Education and have an international reputation.

Where can Education take you?

You could work as a teacher at various levels within the education system or in education management, research or policy. You might take on an education-related role in other organisations such as youth services, the arts, government, social services or information management.
