Board Approves New Programs for Maui and Kapiʻolani

Posted on | April 29, 2011 | Comments Off

The Board of Regents granted provisional status for a new bachelor of applied science in sustainable science management at Maui and approved an advanced professional certificate in culinary management at Kapiʻolani. Both programs are scheduled for implementation in fall 2011.

The new degree at Maui is one of the only degree programs within the university system with a special focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency and conservation. The sustainable science management degree will provide students with an educational path to careers in virtually any business or industry that seeks to identify, implement and design methods of becoming more sustainable economically, environmentally and socially. As an interdisciplinary program, the BAS integrates topics in energy, ecology, business and management, water and wastewater, agriculture, wastewater management, economics, policy, the built environment and social science.

The advanced professional certificate in culinary management at Kapiʻolani will provide students from across the UH System with an opportunity to gain advanced culinary and managerial skills beyond the current two-year programs, and can lead to a bachelor of applied science degree in culinary management from West Oʻahu.
