Certificate in Arts - level 6

If you wish to participate in university study without having to commit to completing a large set of courses, the Certificate in Arts could be right for you. It is also a good choice if you wish to take a few interest courses at university level.

The arts are the study of humanity: our history, beliefs, societies, languages, and cultures. They ask questions about how we think, how we communicate, how we live, and how we interact with our environment. They teach us to analyse the meaning behind what we are, what we do, and how we came to be that way.

With a Massey CertArts you can study what you enjoy and explore subject areas that spark your interest. You can choose courses from 30 subject areas in humanities and social sciences. You can include courses from different disciplines, including one from outside the humanities and social sciences.

Massey offers passionate and friendly lecturers, a world-class distance learning qualification and access to multi-media learning materials.

Massey will prepare you to be a free and original thinker who will lead New Zealand into the future and help solve some of our big problems.

The certificate can be used as a stepping stone to the Diploma in Arts, and from there to a Bachelor of Arts degree.
