School of Humanities
Humanities disciplines bring together the many different aspects of what it means to be human. In the School of Humanities we ask fundamental questions about society and culture and examine our individual and collective achievements, fascinations and follies in both the past and present.
Learning about and studying languages and cultures is an excellent preparation for participating in our increasingly interconnected world. An understanding of where we have come from as people, and our fundamental beliefs, is developed in many of the other disciplines offered in the humanities at Massey University.
School of English and Media Studies
We offer a range of exciting study options at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Unlock your creative potential and develop practical skills to excel in your career.
