Important Reminder
Your Diversification courses must be from different departments than your Foundations-Global & Multicultural Perspectives (FG) courses. For example, if you took HIST 151 and GEOG 102 for FG, you cannot use any HIST or GEOG courses to fulfill your Diversification requirement.

For more information, see the “Manoa General Education Core and Graduation Requirements” section of this Catalog.

Please Note: 1) Consult your college adviser for a list of updated General Education courses. Additional courses may have been approved after the publication of this Catalog. 2) Some programs specify which courses their students must take to fulfill the Core requirements or to fulfill lower division school or college requirements. For these programs, students should consult an advisor from their intended college, school, or department prior to selecting courses.
