Specialise in Chinese for your Graduate Diploma in Arts at Massey
The Graduate Diploma in Arts (Chinese) is a bridging tool for graduates in other subjects to get the equivalent of a major in Chinese.
Learn a globally relevant language
China has emerged as a major player in the Asia-Pacific region and the world. New Zealand increasingly looks towards the Chinese-speaking world in overseas relations and trade. New Zealand is a multicultural society and home to a substantial number of ethnic Chinese who speak Chinese as their first language.
The Graduate Diploma in Arts (Chinese) focuses on skills in oral and written Chinese. You can take language courses from beginner to advanced level. Alongside the language courses, you can choose from a variety of cultural courses that examine topics such as Chinese history, society and film. Cultural courses don’t require any knowledge of the Chinese language.
If you successfully complete your Graduate Diploma in Arts, you could go on to study a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts or a Master of Arts.
A Graduate Diploma in Arts in Chinese is a good fit if you:
already have a bachelor’s degree and want to expand your horizons
wish to develop an understanding of Chinese language and culture
are interested in pursuing postgraduate study in Chinese.
All students must meet university entrance requirements to be admitted to the University.
To enter the Graduate Diploma in Arts you will have been awarded or qualified for a bachelor's degree or equivalent.
You will need to provide verified copies of all academic transcripts for studies taken at all universities other than Massey University.
