Program Description

Kapi‘olani Community College Liberal Arts students can graduate with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree, complete subject certificates, transfer into a college or university, and best of all continue to be lifelong learners. Liberal Arts students transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete a bachelor’s degree. Students taking courses for the A.A. degree meet the general education requirements at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa and Hilo.  The A.A. degree may also meet the general education requirements at colleges and universities outside the UH system as well. Former Liberal Arts students have transferred locally into the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, West O‘ahu, and Hilo. Others have transferred into Hawai‘i Pacific University and Chaminade University. Liberal Arts students are also enrolling in universities outside the state of Hawai‘i such as Lewis and Clark in Oregon, the University of California Berkeley and the University of California at Los Angeles in California, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, to name a few.

As a graduate student of Liberal Art, I think the degree helped me establish a basic foundation to achieve my goals. It also helped me with my bachelor’s degree in Microbiology at University of Hawai`i at Mānoa as well as pharmacy school.
