Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate programs in CTAHR provide students with an opportunity to acquire those scientific, professional, and personal competencies emphasized by Hawai‘i’s business, governmental, community, and scientific leaders. The college provides a balance of educational experiences that include classroom instruction, laboratory sessions, co-curricular activities, supervised intern-ships, and an international study program.

Admission Requirements

Students may enter CTAHR as first-year students or as transfer students from other departments or academic institutions. Requirements for admission are the same as those for the UH Manoa campus in general, except for the food science and human nutrition, family resources, and fashion design and merchandising majors, where transfer students are required to have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Additional course requirements may also apply to these majors. Information on CTAHR undergraduate programs can be obtained from the CTAHR Office of Academic Affairs.

College Requirements

To be eligible for a BS degree from CTAHR, students must complete the General Education Core requirements, CTAHR requirements, course requirements of the CTAHR major, and at least 60 credit hours of non-introductory courses (i.e., those numbered 300 and above or having a college-level prerequisite) and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in a minimum of 128 credit hours as prescribed by the major. Some majors may require more credit hours. All CTAHR undergraduates are required to complete a set of interrelated courses: SP 151 Personal and Public Speech (except textiles and clothing majors); FAMR 380 Research Methodology or AREC 310 Statistics in Agriculture and Human Resources; and an internship course within their major field.
