About the Colleges of Arts & Sciences

The Colleges of Arts & Sciences are the heart of the university, providing a broad and excellent liberal arts education for undergraduates, and offering graduate degrees in more than 40 different fields. The Arts & Sciences provide the majority of the general education undergraduate courses offered on campus, and the majority of undergraduate and graduate degrees conferred are in Arts & Sciences disciplines, indicative of the key role the colleges play on the Mānoa campus.

A liberal arts education is centered in the principles of open inquiry, critical thinking, integration of knowledge, and assessment of values. These principles serve as a foundation that guides students in their journeys toward fulfilling lives, productive careers, and awareness of civic responsibility. Most importantly, these liberal arts principles spark interest in higher learning, as well as prepare students for entering postgraduate professional schools. Arts & Sciences graduates embark on a wide range of professional fields that lead to rewarding careers in business, technology, public service, and education just, to name a few.
