Yes it was. It was amazing. The people were great - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
I gained a lot of knowledge in regards to the history and culture of Hawai'i, but the experience in the program was awkward because the group dynamics were off. - University of California - Los Angeles View Entire Review

About

Attend the UCLA Hawai‘i Travel Study program for a critical examination of race, ethnicity, history, gender, sexuality, and U.S. empire in the context of the Hawaiian islands. Hawai‘i is world famous as a “tropical paradise” and also has been heralded as a “racial paradise,” occupying a unique position as a place where “minorities comprise a majority.” During this 5-week program, students can enjoy the sun, sand, and surf while investigating local histories and communities and problematizing issues related to indigeneity, politics, economy, representation, and colonialism. Through field visits, service learning, discussion, and student-led research opportunities, the UCLA Hawai‘i Travel Study program seeks to broaden student understandings of Hawai‘i and the Pacific.
