Graduate Admissions

Prospective graduate students with an interest in Japan should first note that they must apply through the UHM Graduate Division. The Asian Studies Program website has a section that nicely outlines the relevant information:

• http://manoa.hawaii.edu/asianstudies/grad_admission.html

Prospective students should also visit the Graduate Division’s website that contains information on the degree requirements for incoming graduate students focusing on Japan. Again, follow the link below:

Finally, the East Asian Languages and Literature department’s website also has extensive information on graduate admissions. Note that all applicants for the MA must have a BA or equivalent preparation, and must submit three letters of recommendation and GRE General Test scores. In addition to approval of admission by the Graduate Division, students must have satisfactory GRE scores (TOEFL scores, minimum of 560, are required of foreign students) and letters of recommendation. See the link below for more information:

Note for out of state students: As of fall 2016, the Asian Studies Program at UH Mānoa is a member of the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP). This program allows master’s, graduate certificate, and doctoral students who are legal residents of the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education (WICHE) member states to pay Hawai’i resident tuition when attending the UH-Mānoa Asian Studies Program.
