UH Manoa Core Requirements
The Diversification requirement is intended to assure that every student has a broad exposure to different domains of academic knowledge, while at the same time allowing flexibility for students with different goals and interests.
Students can complete this requirement over the full four years of their academic program. Thus, students may satisfy the Diversification requirement by taking approved lower- or upper-division courses for which they meet course prerequisites. Some courses that satisfy the Diversification requirement may also simultaneously satisfy Focus or major requirements. (See the “Requirements that may be Double-Dipped” table below.)
Requirements That May be Double-Dipped
Diversification courses must come from different departments than the courses used to satisfy the Foundations Global and Multicultural Perspectives requirement.
