UH Manoa Graduation Requirements
UH Manoa Core Requirements
The Diversification requirements are intended to assure that every student has exposure to different domains of academic knowledge, while at the same time allowing flexibility in choice of courses for students with different goals and interests.
Students can complete the Diversification requirements over the full four years of their academic program. Students may satisfy the Diversification requirements by taking approved courses for which they meet course prerequisites. Some courses that satisfy Diversification requirements may also simultaneously satisfy Focus and/or major requirements. (See the "Can a single course satisfy more than one requirement?" table)
Can a single course satisfy more than one requirement?
To satisfy this requirement, students must take six credits; the six credits must include two of the three different areas: Arts “DA,” Humanities “DH,” and Literatures “DL.”
To satisfy this requirement, students must take a total of six credits from two different departments.*
To satisfy this requirement, students must take three credits in Biological Science “DB,” three credits in Physical Science “DP,” and one credit of Science Laboratory “DY.”
Diversification courses are identified in this Catalog with
the following letters after the course description:
*Some departments have multiple course alphas. Students who take their two DS courses from the same department but with different course alphas are considered to have fulfilled the DS requirement. For example, the Family and Consumer Sciences Department offers two course alphas: Family Resources (FAMR) and Fashion Design and Merchandising (FDM). A student who takes FAMR 230 and FDM 200 is considered to have fulfilled the DS requirement.
