    School Overview

    The University of Hawai’i System first opened as a land grant institution called the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Honolulu in 1907. By 1920, the school gained university status, changing its name to the University of Hawai’i. By the 1930s, UH began expanding its physical campus by adding other schools and awarding its first doctorate degree. World War II and the attack on Pearl Harbor halted growth for a short period. However, expansion resumed in the 1950s, as the university introduced the Hilo Branch and the Asian Theater program. Throughout the twentieth century, campuses were established on the various islands, and academic programs continued to develop. The main campus in Manoa is the largest and oldest of the college campuses and is a land grant, sea grant, and space grant research facility. 

    More than 600 degree programs are offered through the University of Hawai’i, including bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, and graduate and professional certificates. Distance learning degrees extend from certificate and bachelor’s degrees to online master’s and doctorate programs.
