Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

The Master of Arts (MA) degree consists of taught coursework, which may include internship opportunities, and independent research in a wide variety of Arts subjects. It provides the opportunity to critically examine current practices in the field, while also demonstrating understanding of the principles of research.

Those interested in a research-focused programme of study in their subject may consider the Master of Arts (Thesis). The Master of Arts (Thesis) (MA(Thesis) is composed of a substantial body of original research in a wide variety of Arts subjects. It provides the opportunity to contribute to new knowledge in the field and build on academic skills.

The Master of Arts degree consists of a total 180 points, made up from a 30-point compulsory course in introductory research methods, at least 60 points in a single subject, a maximum of 30 points from an internship or other relevant subject, and a 60-point dissertation.

The Master of Arts (Thesis) degree consists of a 120-point thesis in a chosen subject. Students can begin their studies on the first day of any month.

An MA will mark you out as someone with high level thinking and writing skills, knowledge of research and the ability to plan and complete a major task. A PhD will qualify you as a researcher on an international level. With both degrees, you become an expert in your chosen area of study, able to expand critical horizons and to participate in both media scholarship and policy.

All of the programme’s academics are active researchers with international publication records. We have particular strengths in journalism, international media and politics, as well as critical analysis of the media from a wide range of perspectives. See the list of recent student topics on the right and visit our People page to see areas of staff expertise. We warmly welcome you to talk with us about your options.

Media and Communication attracts a wide range of research students, including New Zealand residents and students from countries as diverse as Canada, Malaysia, Germany, Argentina, China, Philippines and the Maldives. They come via a variety of routes: some from an Honours degree, some from overseas universities and some from professional careers.

Topics studied in recent years include:

  • Environmental and science journalism
  • Heroes and villains in the Americas Cup
  • The Maori public sphere
  • Sexualised advertising in women’s magazines
  • The reporting of poverty
  • Journalists on film
  • The journalism of Michael King

Career opportunities

Media and Communication courses are an excellent preparation for a career in a communication industry or profession, from the news media to marketing or government communication. While many Media and Communication graduates enter careers directly related to their studies, some graduates tend to initially enter careers that seek university graduates of any discipline, but which offer ample opportunity to use their knowledge, skills and perspectives on communication in society.

Many organisations place a high value on people who can develop relationships between media and the public as well as manage internal communications. These same skills are also valued by government departments and agencies, both in liaising with the public and in developing policy.
