Manoa General Education Core and Graduation Requirements
Basic Skills and Understanding

The courses listed for the requirements in basic skills and under-standing develop communication and analytical skills. They help students communicate clearly and effectively in standard English, reason clearly and effectively, understand a foreign or Hawaiian language, and achieve a background in the history of civilization.

Written Communication Introductory Level (WR)

All entering freshmen and continuing or transfer students without credits for English 100 must take the Manoa Writing Program examination. Students who are not exempt from the English Language Institute (see the Department of English as a Second Language within the Colleges of Arts and Sciences for possible exemptions) must take the Manoa Writing Program examination and the ELI placement examination. On the basis of placement scores, students will be assigned to one of four categories of introductory-level writing instruction: (a) English 100A (enhanced); (b) English 100 or English as a Second Language 100 (for students whose first language is not English); (c) English 101 and English 101L (a supplemental 1-credit writing lab); or (d) English 22 or English Language Institute 73.

Requirement

All students, except those assigned to English 22 or English Language Institute 73, must complete the English or English as a Second Language 100 requirement within their first two semesters at the University. Those assigned to English 22 or English Language Institute 73 must complete their assigned course the semester after placement and their 100-level course in the following semester. Any student with a grade of D in English 100 or 101 or English as a Second Language 100 must complete English 109.

Approved Courses

English 100A, 100, or 101/101L; or English as a Second Language 100

Writing-Intensive Courses (WI)†

Because writing helps students both to learn and communicate, the University requires students to take writing-intensive courses. Small writing-intensive classes, in which instructors work with students on writing related to course topics, are offered in nearly all departments. Students are strongly encouraged to take English 100, 100A, 101, or English as a Second Language 100 before they enroll in writing-intensive courses.

Requirement

Students who entered the UH system as freshmen in fall 1990 or later must complete, before they graduate from the Manoa campus, five writing-intensive courses (designated with WI in each semester’s Schedule of Classes). At least two WI courses must be from courses numbered 300 and above. Students who entered the UH system as freshmen in 1987-88 must complete, before they graduate from the Manoa campus, two WI courses; in 1988-89, three WI courses; and in 1989-90, four WI courses (at least two of which must be numbered 300 and above).

Students who transfer into the UH system will be required to take, before they graduate from the Manoa campus, the number of writing-intensive courses specified in the following chart based on status at time of transfer. Transfer status is based upon the number of transfer credits accepted by the Manoa campus.

1992-93 and after 5* 5* 3* 2**
* including at least two WI courses numbered 300 and above
** must be courses numbered 300 and above
 
Mathematical or Logical Thinking (M/L)

Clarity of thought and expression are further developed by courses that require students to understand the use of mathematics, logic, or other formal systems.

Requirement

One semester of an approved course in mathematics, logic, or statistics.

Approved Courses

Agricultural and Resource Economics 210, 310
Honors 120
Mathematics 100, 111, 140, 203, 241, 251
Philosophy 110

World Civilizations (WC)

An increasingly complex world demands responsible citizenship. In turn, responsible citizenship presumes an understanding and appreciation of the heritage of the world’s major civilizations. The world civilizations requirement introduces students to the political, social, economic, and cultural development of the world’s major civilizations.

Requirement

Two semester courses that analyze the major civilizations of the world. Students with demonstrated knowledge of Western civilization may substitute a one-semester course in non-Western civilizations. Students with satisfactory comprehension of Eastern civilizations may, with the approval of their dean, substitute a one-semester course in Western history.

Approved Courses

History 151 and 152; or History 161 and 162 (only for freshman in the Selected Studies Program); or History 155 (only for transfer students who have completed a two-semester sequence in Western civilizations).

Foreign or Hawaiian Language (FL)

Knowledge of a second language increases the student’s ability to understand other people; it encourages deeper awareness of the structure of language and its relation to thought, develops sensitivity to other ways of ordering personal experience and social institutions, provides a direct way of comparing another culture to one’s own, and provides greater insight into the workings of one’s native language.

Requirement

Students who entered the UH system prior to fall 1989 must complete, before they graduate from the Manoa campus, first-level study of a language (101 and 102 or equivalent). All students who entered the UH system in fall 1989 or later must complete, before they graduate from the Manoa campus, second-level study of a language (201 and 202 or equivalent). Native and bilingual speakers of a second language may be granted a waiver for the foreign language requirement. Students with previous foreign language study must take a placement exam.

Besides the approved courses listed below, American Sign Language also fulfills the foreign language requirement. Courses in American Sign Language are not offered at Manoa, but the campus will consider students who complete American Sign Language courses to the second level of study as having met Manoa’s foreign language requirement. For specific information on any of the foreign or Hawaiian language requirements, students should contact their adviser.
