Liberal arts majors would be well served by considering spending a semester or two studying in the capital of New Zealand. Wellington is considered the artistic and cultural center of the country and is home to numerous museums and entertainment offerings to explore.


The city is also right on the ocean and provides a great spot for those looking for a career spent exploring the sea, though the rolling hills on the other side of town provide for some great stomping grounds too. The city is teeming with hiking trails, vineyards and more restaurants and shopping opportunities than you could imagine.


For studying, Wellington is popular among fashion students as well as artists. Creative Design students and communications majors also flock to the city thanks to its ample opportunities to study all forms of media. You might have trouble getting your work done here if you have a hard time peeling yourself away from the great outdoors. New Zealand is known for its epic scenery and numerous outdoor pursuits, from mountain climbing to skiing.


If you’re interested in learning more about Wellington and the opportunities for studying in this cosmopolitan city, check with your university and see what programs they partner with.
