Overview

Antarctic Studies is an internationally unique programme of study and inquiry that has been developed by staff at the University of Canterbury in partnership with Antarctica New Zealand, with significant contributions from the other Aotearoa New Zealand universities.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies attracts graduate students from a diverse range of disciplines and draws on the expertise of over thirty academic staff and guest speakers.

Students examine major scientific and environmental themes, as well as contemporary issues facing Antarctica. Participants will consider the major social, political, and legal issues facing the region. As part of the course, students travel to Antarctica for a unique field trip to gather data for reports and projects.

The PGCertAntaStud may be awarded with Distinction.
