Communication and Information

Aloha and welcome to the School of Communication and Information (SCI) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Established in 2022, SCI is fundamentally concerned with the study of communication, including the creation and flow of information among people and communities, through media and technologies, and across time and cultures. By leveraging synergies and increased opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, the school provides students with the knowledge, skills and ethical perspectives to create, gather, analyze and share information in a variety of settings, and understand information flow as a way to address individual and collective goals.

Message from the Chair

Dear Friends, Students, and Alumni,

Welcome to the School of Communication and Information at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa! Students interested in all aspects of communication – including speech and persuasion, technologies that facilitate communication, how information is organized, how it can resolve conflicts, and how it is made and shared by journalists – can take classes within eight degree programs and four certificates across five outstanding academic units.

At the SCI, we believe that communication and information are no longer abstractions. In Hawaiʻi and beyond, people, organizations, and societies feel the impact when information is not delivered, understood, or trusted. Our students have access to a wide range of courses and perspectives that provide opportunities to make media and to create and facilitate information flows in new ways. Our faculty prepare them for the jobs and responsibilities of the next generation of the information society.

If you have questions or would like more information about any of our academic programs, please don’t hesitate to call, email, or visit our offices on UH-Mānoa’s campus in Honolulu.
