Study language and culture at AUT, and learn to understand the importance of communicating successfully in both local and global environments and the key role that culture plays. You’ll have many opportunities to practise your skills in our interactive learning environment or during workplace experience in an industry or community organisation.
AUT's language and culture programmes focus on language in its widest sense. Our courses cover the study of languages including New Zealand Sign Language and Spanish, as well as the areas of creative writing, interpreting, international studies and the importance of intercultural competencies.
Undergraduate study in language and culture will give you a solid grounding in your chosen area.
We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across the field of language and culture.More about our research
