All design degree students enrol in honours. Towards the end of the third year, you decide whether you want to stick with the honours route, where your 4th year will be strongly research-led. The non-honours path is less research-focused and gives you room for more electives in 4th year.
Graduates leave with a portfolio that demonstrates their design work, technical skills, communication skills, teamwork, entrepreneurship, leadership, creative problem solving, and ability to work in a bicultural environment. They are well-equipped for professional design practice and a range of industry, business, and marketing-related activities. Some continue with postgraduate study and research in New Zealand or overseas, including the MFA in design and the Master of Design.
Once you have been granted admission to the design programme at Massey, you'll need to enrol in courses.
