Archawai‘i has partnered with the Colleges of Arts and Sciences to offer a 4-year Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in construction management, historic preservation, interior design, landscape design, urban design, or architecture design.
The current pre-professional undergraduate degree program at UHM, administered in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of architecture and provides a liberal arts and sciences education that takes full advantage of the greater University setting. An entering undergraduate student interested in architecture may currently choose from one of six undergraduate concentrations leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (Environmental Design):
- Construction Management, which contains courses in Architecture, Civil Engineering, Geography, Planning, Sociology, Anthropology, and Geology.
- Historic Preservation, which contains courses in Architecture, Philosophy, American Studies, Planning, Sociology, and Anthropology.
- Interior Design, which contains courses in Architecture, Fashion Design Textiles & Mdsg (FDM, former Apparel Product Design & Merchandising), Art, Art History, American Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Philosophy.
- Landscape Design, which contains courses in Architecture, Tropical Plant & Soil Sciences, Planning, Anthropology, Sociology, Botany, and Geography (existing agreements are in place with CTAHR)
- Urban Design, which contains courses in Architecture, Natural Resource & Environmental Management, Geography, Planning, Anthropology, Philosophy, and Sociology.
- Architecture Design, which contains courses in Architecture, Civil Engineering (the School of Architecture has an existing agreement to work directly with the College of Engineering for teaching specific required/elective courses), Geography, Planning, Anthropology, Sociology, and Art.
Each of these concentrations requires a minimum of 45 semester hours of general (non-architecture) studies. The School has made application for a new pre-professional degree, the Bachelor of Environmental Design, to serve as the primary undergraduate pre-professional degree (non-professional), which will also include a minimum of 45 semester hours of general studies, as required by NAAB.
