Find out more about similarities in the work of Massey language experts and Hollywood movie-makers at the Wellington campus Open Day on Friday.
A packed programme of events includes a mini lecture about what linguists and Hollywood’s finest know about human language and communications. Other attractions for prospective students include the opportunity to explore the science of sport and exercise, view new communication, media and drama labs and tour nursing facilities.
More than 1500 visitors, including hundreds of school leavers, are expected to descend on the campus between 8.30am and 3pm for the open day which showcases all four colleges – Sciences, Business, Humanities and Social Sciences and Creative Arts.
There will also be presentations from the School of Fine Arts and live performances by the New Zealand School of Music.
Those wanting to learn more about career pathways will be able to view presentations about all aspects of design, from photography to fashion and textile design. Other presentations include mini lectures on creative careers in communication and information workshops for Maori and Pasifika students.
Practical information to help prospective students find out more about the student support and accommodation available will also be provided.
Campus Registrar Deanna Riach says the Open Day is an opportunity for the campus to promote its role as a “niche provider” in specific areas of teaching and research.
“We work closely with business and industry and the arts community and focus on careers opportunities for our graduates in a rapidly changing, and increasingly borderless, global economy.”
