Do communication research in a context relevant to you

The research project in this masters enables you to focus on a real-world communication challenge and combine different communication research approaches to develop a novel solution. You can draw on research approaches from public relations, expressive arts, communication management, marketing, linguistics, media studies or journalism studies, or create a bespoke research approach that includes supervision from a related discipline such as Māori studies, international relations or evaluation studies. Your learning will focus on practical, relevant outcomes for your career.

Transdisciplinary research

There are also opportunities to collaborate on a shared transdisciplinary research project with students and co-supervisors from the disciplines you may be working with in your job – such as quality management, emergency management or human resource management.. This will build your understanding of the practical connections between communication and related organisational functions.

You will graduate with an excellent grasp of research, analysis and problem-solving and know how to apply your knowledge to make a difference in your workplaces and community.

What will you learn

In the first segment of the programme you focus on studying the field of communication and its possibilities. This covers the history and theory of communication across different scholarly traditions (from both humanities and business) and industries.

In the second you choose a personalised experience from both ‘heartland’ courses relevant to your discipline – for instance advanced journalism issues, technology and cultural change, linguistics, media practice, advanced public relations or advanced marketing and ‘sister disciplines’ such as quality management.

In the third segment of your programme you work on a research project of your choice that is relevant to your industry and discipline. For details see the ‘Planning’ tab.

Become a master, faster

The Master of Communication is 180 credits. This means that you can complete this qualification in three semesters of full-time study. We offer research supervision in the summer semester if you want to really fast-track your completion. If you study part-time the qualification usually takes between 2.5 and five years.

Our experts are there to guide but you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge and expertise especially in planning and undertaking research.

The world needs communicators. It needs people who have the creativity and imagination to develop content that will inspire and connect people, and the logic, analysis and language skills to deliver that content in a strategic and meaningful way. Massey University’s BC will give you these skills.

Internationally recognised

In 2016 the School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing / Te Pou Aro Korero won coveted accreditation from the US-based Accrediting Council for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, for the four majors of Journalism, Marketing Communication, Public Relations, and Communication Management.

We are ranked No.1 in New Zealand and in the top 150 in the world for our business administration and communication programmes by ShanghaiRanking.

These accreditations mean that your degree is internationally-recognised, making it easier to arrange a student exchange and find employment overseas.

Be sought-after by employers

Your choices are not restricted – every field uses communication specialists, from healthcare to education to aviation to high-end fashion or the arts, and your expertise is transferable – Massey’s BC makes sure you come out well rounded and flexible. Massey Bachelor of Communication graduates have had outstanding employment success.

Lead, don’t follow

Massey University will teach you skills in using up-to-date technology, and you will have the opportunity to obtain deep insights into the communication industries. Massey opens the door for you to become a communication entrepreneur who understands how to develop new business models and can offer thought leadership in this rapidly evolving area of professional work.

Interesting projects

The Bachelor of Communication offers you many opportunities to apply your learning to real-world problems.

You’ll produce strategies, media and publications that apply your communication learning.

These can include marketing strategies for community groups, social media content, documentary films, scripts for theatre, media or film, performances and speeches, depending on what courses you choose from a wide range.

Real-world internship and project experiences

Massey offers a range of experiential learning opportunities in communication, including a communication internship course for BC students with good grades. This internship course allows you to work for a company while you study, network with future employers and gain invaluable real-world experience. You could intern in inspiring organisations like NZ Red Cross, UNICEF, or Forest & Bird, in leading PR agencies or for news media like the New Zealand Herald or Radio New Zealand.

If you are majoring in a creative area, you can also gain hands-on experience through the course ‘Creativity in the Community’, which teaches you to respond to a real-world challenge in a team. Previous students have tackled issues including sustainability and youth justice with powerful creative projects that incorporated poetry, film and theatre.

How does it work?

In your first year, you complete a core of set courses as part of your degree. The first year core means you get to meet other BC students as a group and form an overview of all parts of communication before you specialise. At the start of your second year you choose the area you are most interested in (your major). You also choose a second field of interest (your minor) and from a huge range of optional (elective) courses.

Unique variety in your study – just like the working world

Massey’s Bachelor of Communication is the only communication degree in New Zealand that requires you to take courses from both business and arts. Your degree will be made up of a major from one discipline and a minor from another.

This gives you variety in your study, which means you’ll graduate not just with a degree, but as a well-rounded, innovative communication specialist who is sought-after by employers. In our survey of past graduates, 84% believed that their BC studies were relevant to their present work.

Well-regarded

Environmental Health

WHAT IS IT LIKE?

Massey’s Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health is designed to give you the technical training needed for a professional career in human health protection. You will learn how to protect people and communities from threats to health from our built and natural environments. Environmental health roles often require your initiative to devise workable solutions to problems that really make a difference.

Admission to the Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health is open to graduates who hold a relevant bachelor’s degree or equivalent. This would normally need to be in an applied science or health area, but exceptions are granted depending on other factors such as work experience.

What is environmental health?

Environmental health is the professional area concerned with all aspects of the environment that may affect human health. Threats to human health may be biological, physical or chemical, and may be caused by natural processes, human activity, or a combination of the two. You’ll study important environmental health topics including food safety, infectious disease transmission, drinking water quality, urban air pollution, the hazards of excessive noise, exposure to toxic and other hazardous substances, workplace monitoring, medical geochemistry, contaminated site assessment, waste management and climate change.

What isn’t environmental health?

The name of this discipline is well established but can still sometimes cause confusion for people who are not familiar with the area. In the health context, environmental health does not mean the health of the wider environment – for that you would study environmental science. However, there are a complex range of inter-relationships between the two areas. Climate change is a good example of an environmental impact that will have major direct and indirect impacts on human health.

Entry roles in environmental health

Massey’s Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health will prepare you for a wide range of roles, but more specifically for entry into the two key environmental health occupations:

  • Environmental Health Officer (EHO)
  • Health Protection Officer (HPO).

As with any environmental health career, your training and expertise will continue to grow after you’re employed.

As an HPO you will work with District Health Boards. As an EHO you will work in City or District Councils, or with the New Zealand Defence Force.

Entry to the EHO role is possible because Massey’s Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health is formally recognised under the Environmental Health Officers Qualifications Regulations 1993.

What to expect

The programme takes one year to complete if enrolled on a full-time basis, or two or more years if enrolled part-time to accommodate your work and other commitments.

The programme consists of eight specific courses, which are also taken by students majoring in Environmental Health within the Bachelor of Health Science degree.

Māori Visual Arts

WHAT IS IT LIKE?

The Master of Māori Visual Arts is a postgraduate research qualification. Many of New Zealand’s most respected Māori artists have done their Masters through Toioho ki Apiti, (the Māori Visual Arts programme at Massey), while more recent graduates are attracting recognition as emerging talent.

Toioho ki Apiti, welcomes all indigenous and Pākehā artists by encouraging engagement in research and applied practices relevant to individual cultural contexts. If you are an international student thinking of studying Māori Visual Arts at Massey, please contact Massey’s International Office for essential information about visa applications and other processes.
Studio is the centre

As a Master of Māori Visual Arts student, you will spend most of your time conceiving and making art, in a kaupapa Māori environment.

In the Masters programme, students pursue an individually designed programme of advanced studio practice in Māori or indigenous visual culture related to who they are (whakapapa) as well as their personal strengths and interests. The objective is to realise an individually conceived body of work that allows for the design and/or coordination of an exhibition.

A particular strength of the programme is that the degree structure and delivery embraces customary practices from carving to weaving to kowhaiwhai, yet fosters work that does not necessarily adhere to visual indicators of ‘Māori’ art. The work coming out of Toioho ki Apiti, especially at postgraduate level, often asks critical questions about identity and visual culture and exists at the interface of ‘Western’ and ‘indigenous’ art.

This is an advanced research qualification, so even students who choose to do a studio-only Masters study Māori research methodologies and submit a written exhibition report.

Flexible study

Students can study on campus, with studio space provided, or by distance. Full-time and part-time options are available, so you can fit study around work and whanau commitments.

Most students initially enrol in a Postgraduate Diploma in Māori Visual Arts, and transfer to the Masters programme for the second year if they achieve the required standard (B grade or above). Students spend most of their time in studio, although they can choose to include courses from Māori studies or museum studies.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Māori Visual Arts will push you to produce your best creative work grounded in a deep understanding of Māori or indigenous visual culture. Your supervisors will challenge, guide, disrupt and support you, but most importantly they will help you develop your own unique creative practice.

International recognition

The College of Creative Arts at Massey University is world class. It is ranked in the top 100 by QS University rankings, and in 201 was ranked first in Asia Pacific for design concept by Red Dot. The College is NASAD approved as Substantially Equivalent.

We have the most top-ranked researchers in design, visual arts and craft in New Zealand, based on the 2018 Performance Based Research Funding round.

WHAT IS IT LIKE?

The Postgraduate Diploma in Māori Visual Arts is a course for students who already possess a qualification in Māori Art or who can demonstrate equivalent qualifications. It is a stepping stone to the Master of Māori Visual Arts. Most aspiring Masters students first enrol in the postgraduate diploma, then transfer to the Masters after a year if they achieve the required grade (B average or above)

Toioho ki Āpiti, welcomes all indigenous and Pākehā artists by encouraging engagement in research and applied practices relevant to individual cultural contexts. If you are an international student thinking of studying Māori Visual Arts at Massey, please contact Massey’s International Office for essential information about visa applications and other processes.

In the postgraduate diploma, you will balance independent creative work in the studio with learning in Māori studies or museum studies – although you will spend most of your time making art. Students who have over ten years of exhibition practice can apply to do a studio-only postgraduate diploma; just talk to us about your situation.

Save time and money

We have listened to industry feedback and reduced the amount of time you need to spend at the Manawatū campus.

There are two contact workshops per course, one at the start and one at the end. The closing contact workshop ends with a three-hour morning exam. On the afternoon of the same day, the following day the opening block course of the next course starts, cutting down on accommodation and transport costs and time away from work.

If you haven’t studied maths and science before, don’t worry

The diploma’s first three courses are for students who have not studied mathematics and science at senior high school or tertiary level. These bridging courses ensure you will have sufficient understanding of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology for the Part 2 courses.

Complete in two years

The diploma can be completed in two years. You must complete six of the seven second and third-year courses. Three of the courses are compulsory. Each course is offered once every two years. There is no set order in which the courses need to be taken.
