The Academic Program

The zoology (ZOOL) department at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa offers undergraduate programs leading to bachelor of science and bachelor of arts degrees and a zoology minor, and graduate programs that offer master of science and PhD degrees. Of particular note is the department's emphasis on tropical marine biology and evolutionary biology. There are few places in the United States where these emphases can be pursued more productively or in a more practical setting. Students can acquire a broad background for a career in marine biology. The BS degree is particularly suited for students preparing for graduate training in zoology and related fields and for those seeking immediate employment in zoology-related research and application markets. It provides the broadest scientific background at the undergraduate level. Students preparing for pre-professional programs (premedical, pre-dental, pre-physical therapy, pre-veterinary medical) should consider the BA in zoology degree. It provides greater flexibility in pursuing the broad liberal arts education encouraged by professional schools. The courses applied toward the zoology major may then be selected with those programs in mind.

Undergraduate Study

Prospective majors should consult a departmental adviser.

BA Degree

Requirements

  • BIOL 172/172L
  • BIOL 265/265L
  • BIOL 270/270L
  • CHEM 161/161L and 162/162L (or CHEM 171/171L)
  • CHEM 272/272L and 273
  • BIOC 441 or ENBI 402 (biochemistry lab not required)
  • MATH 215 or 241, or equivalent college-level calculus

Students must take an additional 20 credit hours, including:

  • ZOOL 490
  • Three laboratory courses from the following areas:
  • Developmental (ZOOL 330/330L or 420/420L)
  • Physiology (ZOOL 430/430L, 431, 432/432L, BIOL 406/406L or 407/407L)
  • Ecology and Behavior (ZOOL 306/ 306L, 439/439L, or 470/470L)
  • Genetics (BIOL 375/375L)
  • Morphology and Taxonomy (ZOOL 320/320L, 340/340L, 416/416L, 465/465L, or 475/475L; ENTO 363, 461, or 462)

Zoology courses at the 200 level carry no major credit. MATH 216 or 242 and a year of college physics are strongly recommended for students planning graduate study.

BS Degree

Requirements

Students must complete 78 to 82 credit hours, including:

  • BIOL 172/172L 
  • BIOL 265/265L
  • BIOL 270/270L
  • BIOL 375/375L
  • CHEM 161/161L and 162/162L
  • CHEM 272/272L and 273
  • BIOC 441 or ENBI 402 (labs not required)
  • PHYS 151/151L, 152/152L; or PHYS 170/170L, 272/272L
  • MATH 215 and 216, or 241 and 242
  • ZOOL 320/320L, or 475/475L, or ENTO 363
  • ZOOL 430/430L
  • ZOOL 490
  • ZOOL 499 (4 credit hours)

Also required are 9 credits of zoology electives (300 level or above in ZOOL or approved BIOL courses), 6 credits in science electives (300 level or above in approved courses in natural sciences), and one semester experience as an undergraduate teaching intern in an approved instructional laboratory.

Minor

Requirements

  • BIOL 265/265L or 270/270L
    (Students are advised that selecting only one of the bridging courses [BIOL 265, or 270] may preclude access to some upper division zoology courses.)
  • At least 11 credit hours from the following courses, including one upper division lab course. Both BIOL 265/265L and 270/270L count toward the 11 credits but do NOT satisfy the requirement for an upper division lab course.
  • Developmental biology (ZOOL 330/330L or 420/420L)
  • Genetics (BIOL 375/375L)
  • Physiology (BIOL 406/406L, 407/407L; ZOOL 430/430L, 431, or 432/432L)
  • Ecology and behavior (ZOOL 306/306L, 439/439L, or 470/470L)
  • Morphology and taxonomy (ZOOL 320/320L, 340/340L, 416/416L, 465/465L, or 475/475L)

ZOOL courses numbered 300 and above and BIOL 490 can be applied toward the required 11 credit hours.
