Do you have aspirations to become a nurse, work with young children, or design promotional strategies for businesses? Here is your opportunity. Beginning this August, advanced degree programs in these subjects and many more will be available to Maui residents.
On Monday, July 11th at 6pm, The University of Hawaii Center Maui will host a Degree Preparation Workshop where you can find out all the details on the bachelor’s and master’s programs being offered on Maui this fall through UH Hilo and UH West Oahu. The workshop will be held in the Laulima Building on the UHMC campus in room 102.
Programs that will be discussed at Monday’s workshop include Health Care Administration, Nursing, Disaster Preparedness, Indigenous Language and Culture, Justice Administration, Marketing, Social Sciences, Psychology, and Accounting. The courses are made available through UH’s Distance Learning program and are taught online.
In addition, the Degree Preparation workshop will cover the admissions process, financial aid, as well as supportive advice on juggling work, family, and school. This workshop offers the unique opportunity to ask questions about UH’s distance programs in an informal face-to-face environment.
The University of Hawaii Center Maui has helped thousands of Maui residents get their advanced degrees without leaving Maui. Colleen Wunder, a current distance education student says, “The University of Hawaii Center, Maui’s staff has been extraordinarily helpful in easing my transition between earning my Associates degree at the University of Hawaii Maui College and entering UH Hilo’s Psychology program where I will be completing my degree online on Maui.”
UH’s Distance Learning program provides students across the state of Hawaii with the opportunity to take classes offered by any UH campus. Distance learning online classes can be delivered anytime and anywhere. Programs are facilitated through the UH Center, Maui which offers face-to-face academic support.
