Mātai Ahurea



In Cultural Studies, you will analyse film, social media, graphic novels, art, fashion, sport, everyday activities, and many more, with the aim of understanding how complex our culture is and how it shapes our identity.

This subject – like culture – is highly flexible; you can construct your own degree and choose to dive into what interests you the most.
