Welcome to the College of Arts, Languages & Letters, Mānoa’s newest and largest college launched in academic year 2020-21, following the merger of the former Colleges of Arts and Humanities; Languages, Linguistics and Literature; and the School of Pacific and Asian Studies. This website is temporary while we prepare a new one.
CALL encompasses the study of the arts, humanities, languages, area studies, and human communication sciences on a global scale, with a rigorous emphasis on Hawaiʻi, the Pacific and Asia through our degreed programs and interdisciplinary centers and initiatives. The College houses seventeen academic departments, the School of Pacific and Asian Studies, and multiple research and national resource centers. CALL’s strengths are considerable, from the creative arts to the language sciences, from the core liberal arts to emerging interdisciplinary collaborations across our College and with other academic programs at Mānoa.
CALL’s faculty include award winners in teaching and research, including support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, the National Security Education Program, the Luce Foundation, and many other private and public funding agencies. We are a student-centered College with considerable research prowess and expertise.
We welcome you to explore our academic departments and centers and all that our college has to offer our undergraduate and graduate students. Our disciplines are as important and relevant as ever, and we stand ready to prepare our graduates for a range of on-the-ground careers and a life of inquiry and creativity.
