New Zealand offers a unique opportunity to study differences in how a native culture and a modern culture co-exist. In the case of New Zealand the cultures appear to co-exist as as relative equals and have merged to form a co-culture.
The program also provides students with the opportunity to study how their academic specialization is lived in another culture. The social, cultural, and legal rules that govern relationships, organizations, values, and one's place are sufficiently different as to provide the ability to develop insights into intercultural, interpersonal, organizational, mass communication and public relations contexts.
