General Information

The Colleges of Arts and Sciences are comprised of four colleges that, as a single unit, offer an integrated curriculum leading to baccalaureate and graduate degrees, certificates, and minors in the arts and sciences. Each college includes an administrative unit and a number of academic departments and programs.

The four colleges are served by one administrative unit, the Academic Affairs and Student Academic Services office, which is a part of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences.

An excellent education is the primary mission of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and the Colleges of Arts and Sciences is at the heart of this mission, providing students with a comprehensive learning experience in a vibrant academic climate.

UH Manoa undergraduates take their first University courses in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences as they undertake the General Education Core curriculum that is part of all the bachelor degrees offered on the campus. This liberal arts curriculum stresses the integration of knowledge to enhance students' understanding of life, the human condition, and the world in which we live. The core curriculum also entails critical thinking, which enables students to evaluate arguments, ideas, and theories and to develop creative and meaningful applications of what they learn. The core gives students the tools of inquiry, enabling them first to identify important questions and then to seek, analyze, and interpret possible answers to issues of their lives, world, and universe. The curriculum also provides opportunities to develop students' artistic and creative imaginations and their oral and written communication skills so that they can effectively present their ideas, thoughts, and feelings. Since values guide human actions, the core curriculum allows students to examine their own values and learn about those of others in order to help the students understand themselves and others around the world.

Students who earn their degrees in one of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences will find that the programs of the colleges are designed with the conviction that, beyond the core curriculum, liberally educated persons should have an intensive knowledge of at least one field of the arts, the humanities, the languages, the natural sciences, or the social sciences. An ideal education, based in the liberal arts, prepares students for productive lives and careers, enlightened citizenship, and lifelong learning. The colleges strive to enhance excellent learning opportunities by promoting active student participation.
