Summary

The PGDipArts is an alternative to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours). This programme might be for you if you want to undertake advanced study without writing a dissertation, if honours degrees aren’t recognised in your country, or if you would like to study part-time over a longer period.

You can use a completed PGDipArts with a GPA of 5.0 or higher as an possible qualification for the one-year Master of Arts.

Chinese

Chinese develops your understanding of contemporary China, an increasingly important global economic power.

You can study the Chinese language from beginners to advanced stages. Your language study will be embedded in cultural contexts as you develop your knowledge of Chinese society, history, politics, film and literature. At postgraduate level you can focus on Chinese translation, linguistics and language teaching.

Where can Chinese take you?

Our graduates have careers in international organisations, NGOs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and other areas of government. You might also work for a multinational company or a New Zealand company in Asia, or within New Zealand's Asian communities.
