Course details

Summary

The world is full of challenging and wonderful places and studying the Arts is your passport to discover these.

What is it Like?

The Certificate in Arts is designed for students who wish to participate in university study without having to commit to completing a large set of courses. It is also available for those who wish to take a few interest courses at university level.

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

The Arts are the study of humanity: our history, beliefs, society, language, and culture. They ask questions about how we think, how we communicate, 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.

You choose what you study

With a Massey CertArts you can study what you enjoy and explore subject areas that spark your interest. You can choose courses from 30 subjects areas in Humanities and Social Sciences.

Do it your way

The CertArts is extremely flexible and you can include courses from different disciplines, including one from outside the humanities and social sciences.
