International Research Programme
Gain critical research skills as you work alongside academics in the Faculty of Arts to explore global issues, from refugee resettlement to indigenous identity.
As a Communication, Culture, and Media major, my research entails hands-on learning about different cultures and the way people interact in society. Doing research abroad is one of the best ways to gain this experience, as it combines living in a different culture with doing historical research about it.
This programme is returning in 2024.
Develop multidimensional research skills as you contribute to research projects that tackle complex, global issues. This year's research projects include:
- Superfluous Injury, Unnecessary Suffering and the Regulation of War
- Citizenship, Impermanent Residency and the Politics of Populations on the Move
- The Practice of Involuntary Civil Commitment of Individuals with Mental Illness: A Pacific Perspective
- Mother of the ERA: A Political Biography of Martha W. Griffiths
- Mapping Innovations in Indigenous, Feminist, and Culturally Appropriate Research Methodologies
- Ngā Taonga o Wharawhara / The World of Māori Body Adornment: Understanding Adornment in Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Worlds
- Researching the University of Auckland Art Collection
- Censorship in Italian Cinema
Students will join a cohort of research students and work alongside academics in the Faculty of Arts on a variety of research tasks. Students will be engaged full-time (approximately 40 hours per week).
Each research project will involve a variety of research tasks and assessment will involve a written report and analysis of research themes.
International students will receive 15 NZ points (approximately 3-5 US credits) on an official University of Auckland transcript.
