Meet our graduates

My study definitely helped me keep in touch with my culture.

Apirana Pēwhairangi - Rugby league player, Warriors
Bachelor of Arts (Māori studies)

It has been a life-changing experience for me.

Carole Fernandez
Doctor of Philosophy

My research looked at Māori perspectives on social networking, which is of interest to many research groups and institutions, particularly as it is a new field. I was one of the first to examine this topic.

Dr Acushla Dee O'Carroll
Doctor of Philosophy

Massey’s online learning community Stream is such a useful tool. It provided me with so much useful information and a forum to ask questions comfortably.

Forrest Butler
Bachelor of Business (Accountancy), minor in Māori Studies

Studying at Massey has allowed me to combine my interest in planning with my vision to grow indigenous knowledge

Hinetákoha Hayley May Millar Viriaere - Policy planner, Wairoa District Council
Master of Resource and Environmental Planning

Young people are contributing to the future of the language and making it relevant to their lives. If any generation is likely to show the future of te reo Māori it’ll be those who can speak Māori, and it’ll be the younger generation who’ve been raised through Māori medium education.

Hinurewa Poutū - Teacher, Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Mana Tamariki
Doctor of Philosophy

I love the land and grew up in Mangatainoka wanting to be a builder. When I left school, I became a dairy farmer and now I am combining my interests.

Kiri Symonds
Bachelor of AgriCommerce (Māori Agribusiness)

The best part about studying at Massey was access to Māori resources, Māori lecturers and Māori spaces all catered to by Massey.

Paulé Ruwhiu - Lecturer, School of Social Work, Massey University
Master of Social Work

The amazing lecturers have open minds about different whakaaro, different types of work and you’re appreciated for your ideas. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the BMVA… the skills to express myself and the confidence and passion I’ve gained in my art and in where I come from, in my pepeha.

Puawai Taiapa-Aporo - Social Media and television presenter, "Hey Puawai"
Bachelor of Māori Visual Arts

What I took away from the te reo course component was a stronger foundation of tikanga (protocols and custom), cultural identity and personal value as a Māori.

Talisa Kupenga - Reporter, Te Kāea, Māori Television
BA Te Reo Māori (minor)
