COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course surveys the origins and evolution of the ancient Hawaiian society and culture, the changes during the monarchial period, and the transformation of Hawai‘i as an American territory and state.  As a Writing Intensive (WI) course, you will be expected to write a minimum of 4,000 words (about 16 pages) of formal writing.  In addition, this course fulfills both KCC’s and UHM’s HAP requirement in that it provides a native voice to Hawaiian history and includes topics about the Pacific or Asia in 10 of the 15 weeks.  For those students who want to incorporate community service into their course work, this course also has a Service Learning option.
