AA in Hawaiian Studies

poi pounding

Leeward's new associate in arts degree in Hawaiian studies was collaboratively developed by the community college campuses as an option to prepare you to transfer to a Hawaiian studies baccalaureate degree path at UH Mānoa or UH Hilo. It marks the first time a degree was approved for all the University of Hawaiʻi’s seven community colleges.

It also provides you with the option to earn an associate degree that provides the qualifications that would be beneficial in the workforce or or other areas of study where a knowledge of the host culture are desired. You have an opportunity to follow a path of Hawaiian knowledge that, once you graduate, will allow you to take that knowledge into the workforce and back to their communities.

The degree will be offered beginning in the fall 2012 semester.
