Pacific Island Studies Program

The Pacific Islands Studies program prepares students to be knowledgeable about the languages and cultures of the people of the Pacific. Students also have an area of emphasis in order to prepare them to be employable in the community and the region.

Students are expected to study geography, history, politics, art, economics and social issues in order to be connected to Hawaii and the Pacific region. Students are encouraged to participate in internships in order to be highly prepared for employment.
