Что я буду изучать?

Learn Brazilian Portuguese, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, and gain a competitive edge in the global job market.


With Massey’s Diploma in Arts (Portuguese) you’ll gain general knowledge and understanding of the Portuguese language and Brazilian culture.

Brazilian Portuguese has a slightly different grammatical structure to European Portuguese, but is similar enough that speakers of Brazilian Portuguese would understand and be understood by speakers of European Portuguese.

You don’t need any knowledge of Portuguese to enrol. You’ll progressively develop communication skills in oral and written Portuguese, from introductory to advanced level, and gain an understanding and appreciation of Brazilian culture and heritage.

You’ll also learn to apply your knowledge to analyse, communicate ideas and solve basic problems in diverse contexts. This will make you highly employable in a range of careers.


Knowledge of Portuguese language and culture will prove both valuable and rewarding. Opportunities to live and work in Brazil are growing, as the country’s economy booms. Learning the language will give you an edge in the job market, as few English-speakers also speak Brazilian Portuguese.

Studying Portuguese gives you a wide range of career choices, such as:

  • Diplomacy
  • International business
  • Teaching
  • Travel and tourism
  • Immigration and customs
  • Foreign affairs
  • Journalism
  • Trade and export


The requirements for the Diploma in Arts endorsed in Portuguese are:


  • 230.111 Tū Kupu: Writing and Inquiry
  • 230.112 Tū Arohae: Critical Thinking

Pass 75 credits in Portuguese consisting of:

  • at least 45 credits at 200- and 300-level in Portuguese
  • 30 credits at any level in Portuguese

The remaining 15 credits for the Diploma in Arts can be from Part II of the schedule for the Bachelor of Arts degree (including further courses from the endorsement subject) and/or courses offered in other undergraduate degrees.
