Welcome from the Head of the School of Social and Cultural Studies.

Head and shoulders of a man

Welcome to Te Kura Mahinga Tangata, the School of Social and Cultural Studies. As a part of the Wellington Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, we are a major site of social science teaching and research here at Te Herenga Waka Victoria University of Wellington. The academic programmes provided by the School include Criminology, Cultural Anthropology, Religious Studies and Sociology. We also offer minors in Social Policy and Gender and Sexuality Studies.

We welcome enquiries from potential undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers, academics and others interested in establishing connections. Our website provides information about our programmes and the degrees to which they contribute along with the research interests and expertise of our staff. I hope that you find the information you are seeking and if you would like further information please contact us.

We look forward to meeting many of you in the near future.

Acting Head of School
