The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree is a one-year, research-only master’s degree. It's a great opportunity to explore a research topic of an applied or professional nature, under the supervision of AUT's expert academic staff.
The Master of Philosophy enables you to expand your research capabilities by focusing on a particular area of interest. It can provide a pathway to more advanced research at doctoral level.
Studying social sciences and public policy can open up a wide range of careers that involve understanding and working with people and organisations. At AUT you’ll study society at many levels – from individuals, families and communities, governments and cultures through to our global system.
You will become familiar with disciplines including conflict resolution, criminology and psychology.
