Graduate Diploma in Pacific Journalism
The Graduate Diploma in Pacific Journalism addresses the shortage of Pasifika journalists in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is suitable for people wishing to enter the media industry from another career or those already in the industry desiring a qualification. It will also appeal to students from the Pacific region as well as those in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The programme is enriched by Pasifika and Māori and other media elective papers.

Students take core papers within the Bachelor of Communication Studies in Journalism, which provide the necessary skills to prepare the student for professional journalism work. In addition, they take Pasifika media papers and are able to choose other electives that reflect particular interests in the Asia-Pacific region. The core papers include a media industry internship and study of a Pacific language.
