What will you study?

HPU sets you up for success.

HPU is different. You learn from professors who are top of their field, not only in academics, but in applied and industry knowledge. With this type of college education, you don’t just learn from lectures and textbooks. Courses at Hawai‘i Pacific University are hands-on and interactive. You study under and learn from faculty who excel at teaching face-to-face and in online environments, making your learning experience is seamless.
