Certificate Offered: Certificate in International Cultural Studies

The Academic Program

The Certificate in International Cultural Studies offers a graduate interdisciplinary course of study that enhances existing degrees in Arts & Sciences, area studies, and the professional schools. 

Given that the language of culture is increasingly heard in debates about issues as diverse as nationalism, human rights, immigration, trade, the environment, education, media, and the arts, the certificate program is concerned to develop tools for a more informed, critical understanding of the role of culture in public debates and policy.

Hawai'i's location at the intersection of local, U.S. and Asian spheres of influence provides an important vantage point from which to take up the social and cultural transformations taking place in today's era of economic globalization and restructuring. Issues of cultural identity and politics are sharply drawn in the distinctive mix of indigenous, local and international communities in Hawai'i today. Program courses and activities support a variety of approaches to analyzing and understanding the significance of culture, and of cultural difference, as global flows of people, culture and capital increase the heterogeneity and flux of everyday life throughout the world. 

Certificate Requirements

The Certificate program combines course work with directed research and, where possible, community involvement.

  • A core of three courses (7 credits), including:
  • International Cultural Studies: History & Theory (CUL 610)
  • International Cultural Studies Speaker Series (CUL 609)
  • Capstone Experience (SOCS 750). The Capstone Experience is an individual research project taken as directed research and supervised by a participating faculty member.
  • Three electives (9 credits), including two taken outside the student's department.
