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 internships, and international study. Student exchange programs are also available for those desiring short term exposure to other institutions.

Admission Requirements

Students may enter CTAHR as freshmen 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, and natural resources and environmental management majors. Transfer students are required to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for natural resources and environmental management majors, and 3.0 for food science and human nutrition majors. Pre-requisite course work is also required for food science and human nutrition majors. Information on CTAHR undergraduate programs can be obtained from the CTAHR Office of Academic and Student 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 45 credit hours of upper division courses (300+ level courses), earn a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in major courses, and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in a minimum of 120 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: FAMR 380/380L Research Methodology/Lab or NREM 310 Statistics in Agriculture and Human Resources; and an internship or capstone course within their major field. Foreign language requirements are specific to each academic program. Check with a CTAHR academic advisor for more information.

Multiple Majors/Degree

Students seeking a multiple major/degree must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA, submit an application, personal statement and academic plan, in addition to meeting with a CTAHR academic advisor. Students desiring to add a CTAHR major/degree as their secondary major/degree, must successfully complete the introductory course for the CTAHR major with a C or better (except for FSHN, which must be completed with a B or better) and started math, chemistry, and biology course work if required for the proposed major.

Second Degree

Students may enter CTAHR as a second degree student. Requirements for admission are the same as those for the UH Manoa campus in general, except for food science and human nutrition (FSHN), and natural resources and environmental management (NREM) majors. Second degree students are required to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for NREM and 3.0 for FSHN majors. Pre-requisite course work is also required for FSHN majors. Students seeking a second degree must demonstrate that the proposed second degree is substantially different from the first degree.
