International Affairs

  • International Affairs subject



Note: You can enrol in this subject from October 1st.

This specialisation combines foreign language with social sciences to understand complex international relations and political systems, and to use your language skills in many fields. You'll also be examining where our bicultural society of Aotearoa stands in the world.

You'll be able to develop multicultural awareness and communication skills, making you extremely employable in Aotearoa and overseas.

A good accompaniment to this specialisation is participating in UC's international exchange programmes to gain life experience outside of Aotearoa.
