About

Pacific and Indigenous Studies at the University of Waikato focuses on the diverse Pacific region – which covers a third of the earth’s surface and is home to over 1200 languages – as well as on the histories, experiences and perspectives of Pacific people in New Zealand.

Overview

Students of Pacific and Indigenous Studies bring a wide range of background knowledge to their studies: from Pacific students who will find their own perspectives are valued and expanded through academic study in this area, all the way through to students who might have little knowledge about the region but bring a desire to learn about where we are.

All students of Pacific and Indigenous Studies at the University of Waikato learn a lot about the region and where we are, and also practice and develop skills of critical thinking, communication, and analysis of diverse perspectives.

Programme Structure

This learning of specific content and skills is underpinned by questions which relate to the people of the Pacific region and the big questions of the 21st century:

  • What does it mean to be human?
  • What is the relationship between knowledge and power?
  • What are the real costs and opportunities related to development, cultural change, and migration?
  • What is the difference between equality and sameness?
  • How do we learn from histories (of greatness and of genocide) in order to shape a better future?
  • What legacy do we want to leave for the 22nd century?
