Program Overview

The Bachelor of Contemporary International Studies (BCIS) is a fully NZQA-accredited three-year degree.

The programme provides students with opportunities to explore key areas and within them to specialise in a number of fields: International Business, International Relations, Japanese Studies, and TESOL & Language Studies. Graduates from the degree will have the tools to succeed as global citizens in the modern world.

Graduates will become able to think critically and solve problems in creative ways, and will be able to use more than one language, and communicate cross-culturally and inter-culturally.

Japanese Studies
This major is centred on papers that emphasise the development of a foundation in Japanese language skills as well as an understanding of traditional and contemporary Japanese culture, modern society, politics, and business.

Japan is not only a highly-influential country in the Asia-Pacific region, but also a major part of international relations, business, tourism, and education markets with New Zealand. The Japanese major allows students to develop a strong foundation in Japanese language, while gaining understanding and knowledge of Japanese culture, society, politics and business. The language programme, taught by native Japanese speakers, places equal emphasis on the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, in order to build professional communication skills in students.
