Overview

Like most general Arts qualifications, there is a wide range of subject choice available at UC, with more than 30 subjects on offer – from Anthropology to Te Reo Māori. The great thing about the Postgraduate Certificate in Arts is that this qualification can be:

  • completed in a relatively short period of time (6 months full-time study or 12 months part-time)
  • studied part-time, which is ideal for those wishing to undertake professional development or to expand their disciplinary knowledge in a relevant field whilst working or juggling other commitments
  • a combination of different courses, either in different subject areas or a mix of courses from one programme with an internship or digital humanities project added in to enhance employment skills and applied learning experiences
  • an ideal stepping stone to further postgraduate programmes on offer at UC.

PGCertArts students will be introduced to sophisticated subject matter and develop skills in the critical evaluation of academic literature in their discipline or area of specialisation. They will also foster high-level skills in critical thinking, problem solving, and communication.
