Kei ngā whakaraupapatanga o te whakaako kounga, te ako, te

Drawing upon multidisciplinary quality teaching, learning and research, Laidlaw’s Indigenous Theology track draws students into an exploration of the Gospel in and through Indigenous contexts. In doing this, it aims to contribute to the growth and development of Māori and Indigenous peoples, and indigenous approaches to Christian theology.
The Indigenous Theology track is being refreshed for 2022. In 2021, current students in the Indigenous Theology track can study toward a Graduate Certificate in Theology (GradCertTh) or the Graduate Diploma in Theology (GradDipTh) and can be combined with courses from the general GradCertTh or GradDipTh. Some of the courses that make up this particular track may also be taken as part of a Laidlaw undergraduate degree. Options to take these courses for credit outside of a programme (Certificate of Proficiency) or non-formally are also available.
