The Bachelor of Arts prepares you for a huge range of careers, and you can build your degree in a way that suits you – study a single or a double major, select from a wide range of minors or add elective papers from another area of study. Throughout your Bachelor of Arts you’ll develop effective communication, critical thinking and analysis skills, as well as the ability to research and present professionally. These skills are key to any professional role.
Study Chinese and you'll learn to communicate with cultural sensitivity and linguistic proficiency – key skills in our multicultural world.
There are Chinese-speaking communities in every corner of the globe, so knowledge of the most widely spoken language in the world is your passport to exciting career and travel opportunities.
Gain an edge over the competition by developing knowledge in more than one discipline – you can tailor the Chinese Studies degree to your career aspirations by including papers in a range of subjects, from business, hospitality and tourism and social sciences, to international studies, translation and interpreting.
Explore Chinese culture, values and society, as well as the essentials of Chinese language. This major can be studied as part of a double major, and graduates can choose from a wide range of careers in New Zealand’s increasingly multicultural workplaces.
