Customized Short-term Programs

Located in lush, green Mānoa Valley, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) is a safe, inviting destination conducive to learning both in the classroom and in a natural island environment.

The CSS Customized Short-term program provides students meaningful educational and cultural experiences different from their own. We strive to create a truly memorable experience by integrating your curriculum interests with complementary activities.

Length: Varies between one to four weeks.

Past themes: Globalization, the Environment in Hawai‘i, Japanese Immigration in Hawai‘i, and Business Skills Development for Administrative Staff.

Activities: Unique-to-Hawai‘i excursions, interaction with UHM students, English-language programs, Hawaiian activity workshops, lectures, service learning and civic engagement field trips, visits with distinguished community members, and classroom observations.

Our programs are thoughtfully designed to maximize student engagement through the expertise of CSS faculty and partnerships.

Location: Most activities to be held on the UHM campus, Honolulu, O‘ahu, Hawai‘i, USA. Most excursions require arranged transportation.

Accommodation: On-campus housing is available at the UHM campus depending on availability. Some groups enjoy homestay programs where students stay with host families to experience the island lifestyle.
