Program description

Postgraduate certificates provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree.

Some are available only on a part time basis. Waikato University offers specialist postgraduate certificates as well as postgraduate certificates. The Postgraduate Certificate comprises a minimum of 60 points at 500 level or above.

Education and Society

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

Education and Society today has close affinities with contemporary interdisciplinary fields exploring issues of social policy, culture, gender, work and leisure. Since education is as much concerned with who we might become as who we already are, it is relevant to all our collective and personal decision-making on questions of justice, rights and freedom.
