Certificate Programs

In addition to the major concentrations that are part of every bachelor's degree, students may choose to pursue a certificate in an area of personal interest. Certificates signify that a student has completed a defined body of work in a particular department or program. Certificates can be conferred as soon as the student completes the program's requirements. The right to confer certificates has been granted to certain programs and departments by the Board of Regents; some certificates are only for graduate students. Most certificates entail a minimum of 15 credit hours of non-introductory course work (including all upper division courses and those on the 200 level that have college-level course prerequisites), completed with a grade of C or better. Information on specific certificates can be obtained from the appropriate department or program office.

The Colleges of Arts and Sciences offer certificate programs in the following disciplines: clinical psychology (graduate students only), environmental studies, ethnic studies, European languages and literature (Classics, French, German, Russian, and Spanish), Hawaiian, historic preservation (graduate students only), Indo-Pacific languages (Burmese, Filipino, Hindi, Ilokano, Indonesian, Samoan, Sanskrit, Tahitian, Thai, and Vietnamese), international cultural studies (graduate students only), interpretation (post-baccalaureate certificate), music, Pacific Islands studies (graduate students only), peace studies, planning studies (graduate students only), population studies (graduate students only), public administration (graduate students only), religion (graduate students only), Russian studies, post-baccalaureate second major+, sophomore honors, telecommunication and information resource management (graduate students only), translation (post-baccalaureate certificate), urban and regional planning (graduate students only), and women's studies.

For additional information on the post-baccalaureate certificate for a second major, see Undergraduate Programs, within this section of the Catalog.

From matriculation to graduation, students can take advantage of a range of advising services offered by the Arts and Sciences Student Academic Services office.

Freshmen

Sophomores

Sophomores who need assistance choosing a major should see an academic adviser or attend a special session designed to help students sort through their options. If they are interested in transferring to another program, they should see an adviser in that office. 

Juniors

Juniors can attend a Junior Matriculation Planning (JUMP) session to assess their academic progress, project a graduation date, and plan their remaining semesters at UH Manoa.

Seniors

Seniors must attend a Graduation Audit (GRAD) session to review their record, plan their remaining semester(s), and do the necessary paperwork for graduation.

Students can also meet individually with advisers for clarification of requirements and for resolution of complex academic issues and individual concerns.
