Study Arts and Social Sciences in New Zealand


The University of Waikato New Zealand

 

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is the largest School of Studies at the University of Waikato. As such, we take pride in the subjects we teach and the research of our academic staff. Faculty academics are leaders of national and international research covering all aspects of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
During your time at Waikato, we hope that you will develop pride in the knowledge and skills you gain through individual learning, group discussions, and the guidance of your tutors and lecturers - because your knowledge and skills will impact within our local and national communities. The universal values of our subjects do not change because they have been around for thousands of years; but our ways of teaching and the content of our papers do, as a continual process of providing our students with contemporary theories and concepts.

Over the years, the Arts and the Social Sciences at Waikato have produced thousands of graduates who are making their name, personally and professionally, throughout the world. We welcome you to join them, but above all, we welcome you to our Faculty to be introduced to the pleasure of academic challenge, and of learning for learning's sake.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers a range of opportunities for international students intending to study at The University of Waikato whether it's for one semester or longer.

We welcome students from around the world to browse our webpages and contact us with any questions about our disciplines. If you wish to apply to study in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences you will need to contact the International Centre who will advise you of the application processes.

Students both international and domestic choose to study in the Faculty because of our focus on:

  • Societal, cultural and developmental issues, particularly those of New Zealand and the Pacific Rim countries;
  • Contemporary subjects such as Social Policy; Organisational Psychology; Employment Relations; Screen and Media Studies; Resource and Environmental Planning;
  • The Creative Arts (Drama, Music, and Art History); performance, practice and theory;
  • Up to date teaching (link /wfass/research/pubs.shtml) and nationally and internationally renowned staff;
  • Professional graduate qualifications (Resource and Environmental Planning, Clinical Psychology, Community Psychology, Second Language Teaching, Applied Ethics)
  • And enjoying the arts and social sciences disciplines, because that is what learning is all about!

The Faculty is dedicated to the success of its students and has made a commitment to the highest international standards of academic excellence. We welcome international students for the experience and expertise they bring to the University. All our departments have an International Students' Adviser to help students plan and carry out their programmes of study.
