Summary

Further your study and enhance you career potential with advanced courses and supervised research alongside some of New Zealand’s leading scholars.

Programme overview

After graduating with a BA, you can complete a one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) as a qualification in its own right. Alternatively, it can be a pathway to a further year of study in a Master of Arts programme.

The BA(Hons) is an opportunity to extend your understanding of an academic area that you already find intellectually rewarding and personally meaningful. There's also the option of pursuing a subject that's different from your undergraduate major so long as you have the required background.

During your honours year, you can deepen your knowledge in small classes with some of New Zealand’s leading scholars. It's a great opportunity to hone skills that will be an advantage in any career.

Semester Two admission may not be available for some subjects.

Screen Production

Screen Production provides an intensive, film school-style experience for future writers, directors and producers of drama and documentary films.

Screen Production provides practical experience of film and media making, embedded within a liberal arts programme that explores the history, aesthetics and technologies of film and media.

You will be encouraged to develop traditional and innovative skills for creating cinematic narratives, as well as gain technical expertise from staff with strong links to the industry.

Where can Screen Production take you?

Films produced by our students have screened at major international film festivals, including Venice, London and New York, and been included in the New Zealand International Film Festival.

We are proud of our close relationship with industry, as evidenced by our Industry Board of Advisors and the number of graduates who have successfully secured work in the industry.
