Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)

Master's student

My time spent completing my Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology and minors in Maori studies and social anthropology has been beneficial in many aspects and I have achieved more than a university qualification. I’ve had the opportunity to live the university experience and meet like-minded students who have become life-long friends. My BA qualification also enables a future with better employment options thus benefiting my whanau.

My tertiary journey has required compromises. However, in the long-term the benefits will be worth it, so much so that I have continued with my studies and I am currently completing a master’s degree in psychology.

"E tipu, e rea, mo nga ra o tou ao; ko to ringa ki nga rakau a te Pakeha hei ara mo to tinana, ko to ngakau ki nga taonga a o tupuna Maori hei tikitiki mo to mahuna; ko to wairua ki to atua, nana nei nga mea katoa." - Sir Apirana Ngata.
