Global Change · Local Impact

For nearly 100 years, the rich discipline of Geography has been offered to students attending the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Broad, eclectic, and impactful, our students openly embrace a field of study ripe with research freedoms. Graduates carry a deep understanding of the human/Earth experience, a highly sought after quality in a variety of professional settings.

We warmly welcome prospective undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of sources including local, national, and international, and those entering from both traditional and non-traditional educational pathways. For best results, carry into our classrooms and programs a thirst to better understand, protect, and serve the planet and its flora and fauna.
