University of Hawaii - Manoa School Description

Aloha and welcome to UH Manoa, the largest campus in the University of Hawaii System. We are located on the island of O?ahu, in Honolulu's lush Manoa valley.

As a student at UH Manoa you can choose from 87 bachelor's, 87 master's, and 51 doctoral programs. We also encourage you to get involved outside the classroom and...

We, the faculty at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, invite students to participate in an undergraduate education dedicated to academic excellence and intended to help them make a difference in the world. We embrace the notion that higher education offers a special opportunity for students to experience the interconnectedness of human knowledge across disciplines. Because UH-Manoa is the premier research institution in the state of Hawai'i, its students interact with professors in the forefront of their disciplines and are thereby engaged in the study of how knowledge itself is produced and disseminated. Furthermore, UH-Manoa has unique resources in the depth of its Hawaiian assets and in the breadth of its multiculturalism. Consequently, the UH-Manoa General Education curriculum gives students global foundations with a special focus on the native cultures in Hawai'i and the Pacific.

The General Education requirements are designed to help students develop the skills and ways of thinking they need for study in their chosen majors and for lifelong learning. Graduates from UH-Manoa should know the cultural and artistic heritages of human history; further, they should understand the principles that underlie the natural and social worlds.

From Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia

The University of Hawaii at M?noa is a public, co-educational university and is the flagship campus of the greater University of Hawaii system. The school is located in M?noa, an urban neighborhood community of Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, approximately three miles east and inland from downtown Honolulu and one mile (1.6 km) from Ala Moana and Waik?k?. The campus occupies the eastern half of the mouth of the greater M?noa Valley. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is governed by the Hawaii State Legislature and a semi-autonomous Board of Regents, which in turn hires a president to be administrator.


The University of Hawaii at M?noa was founded in 1907 as a land grant college of agriculture and mechanical arts. In 1912 it was renamed the College of Hawaii and moved to its present location. William Kwai Fong Yap petitioned the territorial legislature six years later for university status which lead to another renaming to the University of Hawai'i in 1920. This is also the founding year of the College of Arts and Sciences.

In 1931 the Territorial Normal and Training School was absorbed into the university. It is now the College of Education.


Today the primary facet of the university consists of the four Colleges of Arts and Sciences: Arts and Humanities, Languages Literatures and Linguistics, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. The college of agriculture and mechanical arts is now the college of tropical agriculture and human resources (CTAHR), one of the few agricultural colleges in the United States focused on tropical research. The University of Hawaii at M?noa is also home to two of the most prominent professional schools in the state. The William S. Richardson School of Law and the John A. Burns School of Medicine are the only law and medical schools in Hawaii, respectively. The Center for Hawaiian Studies provides 'excellence in the pursuit of knowledge concerning the Native people of Hawaii' .
