The Master of Arts (MA) degree consists of taught coursework followed by an independent thesis in a wide variety of Arts subjects. It provides the opportunity to make a contribution to knowledge in the field and critically examine current practices, while also demonstrating understanding of the principles of research.

MA students within the College of Arts benefit from:

  • a lively and supportive postgraduate culture
  • numerous master's scholarships
  • 11 relevant research centres.

The Master of Arts degree consists of two parts:

  • Part I: Coursework (1 year)
  • Part II: A thesis (2 years)

Honours may be awarded if the student completes within the timeframe. Distinction or Merit may be awarded if the student completes an MA by thesis-only in the timeframe and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours.

The postgraduate Child and Family Psychology programme is unique within New Zealand and taught by academic and clinical staff from the University of Canterbury’s with other teaching staff as appropriate.

Our programme places a strong emphasis on consideration of strengths and resiliencies as well as challenges and difficulties, all within the context of the child's environment. We focus on children’s mental health and emotional well-being as well as their learning. We also aim to reflect the social and political context of children in Aotearoa (New Zealand) with an appropriate bicultural emphasis. We also include areas such as parenting, adult mental health and relationships in recognition that children and adolescents do not exist in isolation but are part of family and wider community systems.

The content of the programme aims to be:

  • Intellectually rigorous
  • Based on recent international and national theory, research and trends
  • Evidence- based
  • Reflective of children’s ecology and contexts
  • Focused on the strengths, resiliencies and protective mechanisms of children and families
  • Informed by the social and political context of children in Aotearoa (New Zealand)

Graduates will have a grounding in the theory and skills required for work with children, and their families in all the contexts within which they present for help and support. These contexts include health, education, welfare, non-governmental organisations and the private sector.

Students entering the Master's programme typically have completed a three-year undergraduate degree with a major in Psychology, which requires achieving a pass in PSYC 206 Research Design and Statistics or an equivalent research methods course. In addition, all prospective students will normally be expected to have at least a B average in their 300-level undergraduate courses.

Apart from the Research Methods requirement, we encourage a broad base in your undergraduate study of Psychology or Psychology and Education. As well as the obvious papers in child development, family psychology, abnormal psychology, counselling and applied behaviour analysis, papers considering inclusive practice and education provide an excellent and relevant preparation.

Applicants must also satisfy our English language entry requirements:

  • IELTS (Academic): Minimum overall score of 6.5, with a minimum of 6.0 in reading, writing, listening and speaking.
  • TOEFL (IBT): Minimum overall score of 90, with a minimum score of 19 in Reading, Listening and Writing.
  • PTE (Pearson Test of English - Academic): Overall score of 58 and no communicative skills score below 50.
