Established in Honolulu on May 22, 1992 as an American two-year liberal arts college, Hawaii Tokai International College (HTIC) is the most recent school in the Moili‘ili community adjacent to Waikiki. The only American campus of the Tokai University Educational System of Japan (TES), HTIC reflects the combined educational philosophies of Tokai founder, Dr. Shigeyoshi Matsumae and Dr. Richard Kosaki.
HTIC offers an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree program with a major in Liberal Arts. The Liberal Arts Program introduces students to various fields of knowledge, including the arts and humanities, languages, social sciences, natural sciences, and mathematics, and places a strong emphasis on learning and communication skills. The intent of the Liberal Arts Program is to foster in students a broad intellectual understanding of the individual and society, the natural environment, issues in the arts and humanities, and self-awareness. Those who have been accepted to the Liberal Arts Program are Classified Liberal Arts students.
The ultimate goal of the College Preparatory Program is to acclimate international students to American college study. By focusing on the skills needed to succeed in such an environment, the College Prep Program serves as an ideal gateway for students intending to pursue a higher education in English.
Students enrolled in International Programs (IP) at HTIC engage in intensive study of English while pursuing research in fields such as anthropology, history, medicine , and marine science.
