There are two courses offered by Manoa Advising Center advisors to assist students in the major exploration process.
UNIV 240 (The Fresh-More Experience)
The “Fresh-MORE” Experience is a course designed to provide freshmen and sophomores with the knowledge and skills to thrive in their second semester or second year at UH Manoa. To be eligible for enrollment, students must be Exploratory (undeclared or undecided on a major) and have attended UH Manoa for at least one semester and have earned less than 60 credits. The course is one-credit, meets once a week for 50-minutes, and is writing intensive.
Topics include major exploration (steps and resources), advising services, the Sophomore Slump, academic planning for future semesters, and preparation for after graduation.
UNIV 340 (Academic Exploration through Advising)
UNIV 340 is a 3-credit, Writing Intensive course designed to give students the opportunity to explore their skills, values, abilities, interests, and goals in a structured format. The small class size (20 student maximum), highly interactive and discussion-based format keeps the course engaging and exciting throughout the semester. The course meets twice a week (Tuesday and Thursdays), and explores the connections between areas of interests and potential career trajectory.
If you would like more information on either of these courses, please contact the exploratory program at firstname.lastname@example.org, call the Manoa Advising Center at 808-956-7273, or visit our office in QLCSS 101.
