BS Degree

Basic and Area Requirements

Completion of the UH Manoa General Education Core (see "Manoa General Education Core and Graduation Requirements"). All BS candidates are required to complete the following science courses-either as part of the program or major requirements or as electives: CHEM 161/161L and 162/162L or 171/171L or 181A/181L; any Math department Calculus I and II courses; and PHYS 170/170L and 272/272L, or PHYS 151/151L and 152/152L.

It is recommended that all entering students who have had high school courses in mathematics through pre-calculus take the following courses during their freshman year: CHEM 161/161L or CHEM 171/171L, any Math department Calculus I and II courses, and perhaps PHYS 151/151L or PHYS 170/170L.

Introductory mathematics courses have pre-calculus assessment. Students who do not have a high school course equivalent to pre-calculus should take MATH 140 at the University during the summer session prior to their first semester. All BS degree candidates should consult the appropriate departmental adviser before registering.

Professional Programs

Students who wish to prepare themselves for admission to professional schools should follow the recommendations of the appropriate national professional organization. In addition, they should elect courses fulfilling specific requirements of the schools they hope to enter.

The Professions Advising Center (PAC) in the Arts and Sciences Student Academic Services Office can give specific aid to students preparing for admission to schools of dentistry, law, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, and allied health fields. Information on scholastic requirements of other professions is also available from the following resources:

  • Medical School Admission Requirements, United States and Canada
  • Pre-law Handbook
  • Admission Requirements of U.S. and Canadian Dental Schools
  • Pharmacy School Admission Requirements

Catalogs of individual schools with more specific admission requirements may be found in the Professions Advising Center in Hawai'i 124, or at Hamilton Library, or on the World Wide Web.

Graduate Programs

Information regarding graduate programs and admission is in another section of the Catalog. Each department also includes in its description information about its specific program(s). Check specific departments for program requirements. 

Student Organizations

Societies and clubs associated with many departments within the Colleges of Arts and Sciences give students opportunities to explore a field from an informal perspective, get acquainted with other students with similar interests, and learn of the options available upon graduation. The Colleges of Arts and Sciences highly recommend active student involvement in these associations for the academic and professional enhancements they provide. Check with your departmental adviser for information.
