Studying a Bachelor of Science majoring in Anthropological Science, from 2019

In the Anthropological Science capstone course, you’ll conduct individual and group-based research with significance to a range of stakeholders, including Heritage New Zealand, Auckland Council, Auckland Museum, and iwi and hapū.

Capstone course: a student-led project providing you with an opportunity to integrate and apply your previous learning to a real-world problem.
