Degree: Fine and Studio Arts Management
Graduation Year: 2015

A friendly atmosphere with students of various ethnic and national backgrounds. An excellent school for those interested in Pacific Island Studies, or Pacific languages.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2010

The university's budgeting is a farce. If you even considered the UH system you have probably seen "wonder blunder" or issues with June jones, gib arnold, or norm chow. As a whole, I wish I could be proud of my university, but I attended because it was what I personally could afford. If I went away I would still be paying offffgggghyrhj my undergraduate loans. Also, they make it extremely difficult to graduate with ano undergraduate degree in 4 years because of scheduling of prerequisites. My graduate program was amazing though. The teachers, program, and peers make me proud to have gone into LIS at UH.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2010

Take the Hawaiian Literature courses! If you are an English major, invest in some courses that focus on programming and coding.

Degree: Theatre/Theatre Arts Management
Graduation Year: 2007

Making connections, keeping your choices open (working hard in every class, regardless of whether you like it), and seeing learning as a continuum (something you should constantly be striving for) are the most important things. (Afterall, if you're not going forward, you're going backwards.) Specializing is for insects. My university offered me broad perspectives and trained me in many different theatrical disciplines. Learning lighting, design, costumes and publicity were helpful--even when concentrating in writing, acting and directing. UHM is especially known for its Asian Theatre program and theatre history.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2008

Shidler College of Business covers a wide range of business-related classes from finance to IT, to accounting and business management. This prepares you for a wide variety of careers in and out of business fields. Some of the most enjoyable classes were Business Law and Business Writing.

Degree: Asian Studies/Civilization
Graduation Year: 1995

The University of Hawaii provides a rich multicultural environment--at the time I attended, It was considered a top school for Asian Studies. I was also able to indulge my passion for dance And music--including Javanese Dance, ballet, hula, and bharata natyam. UHM was lacking in terms of a community feel. Many local students attend as commuters. It also has the feel of a larger school--many lower level classes have 100 or more students.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

The CIS PhD program is very self-directed, which is an advantage at times but may get students lost sometimes as well. Some faculty is very helpful but being an interdisciplinary program, some professors are already too busy with their "home" department to follow up on CIS students progress. Financial aid from the CIS program is practically non-existent (beside 1 TAship and a tiny fund to cover little research expenses) and you will have to look for graduate assistantships in other departments, from what I have seen though, CIS students usually find one without too much trouble.
