About

Education and Society at University of Waikato involves critical inquiry into the social, political, cultural, economic and personal theories and practices of lifelong education.

Overview

Why to study

Education and Society involves critical inquiry into the social, political, cultural, and economic policies, theories and practices of education in New Zealand society. Its origins are in humanities and social science disciplines such as History, Philosophy, and Sociology, and it has close affinities with contemporary interdisciplinary fields exploring social policy, culture, gender, and work. Education and Society at University of Waikato raises questions about the role of education in addressing issues of social justice, power and inequality.

The Master of Arts involves advanced study in an Arts subject and is intended for those who want to deepen their knowledge of that subject. The degree also includes a substantial component of independent research. The Master of Arts may be taken within the Faculty of M?ori and Indigenous Studies, School of Arts or the School of Social Sciences.
