Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies
The Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies (PCAS) is a fourteen week in-depth immersion in the beauty, history, science, political discourse, environmental concerns and future challenges of the frozen continent and surrounding seas. It includes a field trip to Antarctica.
This course has been developed jointly by the University of Canterbury and Antarctica New Zealand with significant input from 40 individuals, government agencies and a wider international Antarctic community. The multi-disciplinary perspectives along with the vigourous debate and a broad based critique of the issues that Antarctica faces, have resulted in a Certificate that is unique in its focus.
