American Studies


The University of Hawai'i is home to one of the oldest and largest American Studies departments in the United States. The Department's commitment to multiculturalism is especially appropriate in this setting, since in the University's student body (as in the State of Hawai'i at large) no one ethnic group comes close to constituting a majority of the population. All UH students, like all the people of Hawai'i, are therefore members of one or another "minority group," and fully a third of the population is of mixed ethnic ancestry. Appropriately, the motto of the University is "Above All Nations is Humanity."
