Linguistics

Linguistics is the study of language as a human

activity. It explores how we combine words into

phrases and sentences, how we convey social

information and social goals, how language

changes, how children learn language, and even

how we understand what is meant but has not

been said.

“I am of Tongan descent and have been

living in Auckland for 14 years. It has

always been at the top of my list to attend

New Zealand’s leading university. It is a

great experience studying in the Faculty

of Arts because I am able to expand my

horizons and study more than just the field

I am in currently.

“Once I have graduated I would like to assist

Māori and Pacific families through social

work. I enjoy learning about the history of

the Pacific and also what needs to be done

to improve the lives of Pacific people.

“Remember: no matter how and where you

start the race, it’s the way you finish that

counts.”
