To enrol in the Bachelor of Communication programme you need to have an entrance to university qualification, either through NCEA, New Zealand University Entrance, admission with equivalent status, bursaries and scholarship examinations, discretionary entrance or special admission.
For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
There are two 'tracks' at 300 level.
1. The 'Journalism Research track' is for those who are not necessarily intending to become a journalist, but may want to go on to do further study at postgraduate level.
2. The 'Journalism Practice track' emphasises journalism practice, and aims to prepare you to enter the workforce as a journalist. If you intend to do the Journalism Practice track, you will also need to choose 219.311 and one from either 139.340 or 219.336. If you wish to take this track, please make your intentions known to your journalism lecturers.
