China has emerged as a major player in the Asia-Pacific region and the world. New Zealand increasingly looks towards the Chinese-speaking world in overseas relations and trade. New Zealand is a multicultural society and home to a substantial number of ethnic Chinese who speak Chinese as their first language.
The Graduate Certificate in Arts (Chinese) focuses on skills in oral and written Chinese. You can take language courses from beginner to advanced level. Alongside the language courses you can choose from a variety of cultural courses that examine topics such as Chinese history, society and film. Cultural courses don’t require any knowledge of the Chinese language.
