Summary

Build on your Honours degree with advanced study and research at Master's level and become a leader in your field.

Study your specialist subject in detail and take the opportunity to contribute to the world's knowledge in that area. Enhance your critical thinking, communication and problem-solving abilities and learn to create and assess new ideas.

Working alongside some of New Zealand’s leading academic staff, you'll complete a research thesis of up to 40,000 words and emerge as an expert in your subject with highly developed research skills.

A Master of Arts will give your career prospects a boost and open doors to new opportunities. Be a leader in a humanities or social science field and help make New Zealand a better place.

At the end of your Master's you can choose to continue your research and apply to do a PhD, either in New Zealand or overseas. In exceptional circumstances you may be able to upgrade to a PhD during your Master's study.
