What does a degree from UH Hilo/CNHS mean?

Achievement of a degree in a major from the College of Natural and Health Science (CNHS) demonstrates that a student has attained the knowledge and skills of the discipline to successfully pursue a related career or further education. Students are provided with opportunities that extend their classroom experience, including internships, research assistantships, as well as field, laboratory, clinical, and outreach experiences. Students are prepared for a diversity of careers and pursue science-related jobs throughout the state, region and nation.

Natural and Health Sciences are exciting disciplines at UH Hilo because of the small-class size, diverse student population, and community learning environment. Several natural science disciplines take advantage of the living laboratory of the terrestrial and marine environments of Hawai‘i Island with unparalleled diversity of field experiences. Health sciences emphasize the importance of rural health training and opportunities. CNHS faculty are dedicated to student learning and achievement in our science and mathematics disciplines.
