When Jashil Reddy turned up to her first sociology lecture in her first semester at Massey’s Auckland campus, she was curious but didn’t really know what to expect.
By the end of it, she was so impressed by the lecture – and lecturer Dr Warwick Tie – that she instantly “fell in love” with the subject and made it her second major along with educational psychology.
“It [sociology] teaches you how to ask questions about the world around you – that nothing is set in concrete. It’s given me a whole new way of thinking,” she says. “When I talk to people with very different world views, I don’t judge them. I’ve learned that there are many points of view and things are more complex.”
Doing a BA has helped develop Jashil's transferable skills too – communication, understanding others’ viewpoints and analysing complex information.
“You learn real, valuable, holistic skills doing a BA. You get to be your own person, and to discover who you are,” says Jashil, who hopes to work for Immigration New Zealand, where encountering diverse worldviews will be all in a day’s work.
