University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo CAFNRM


The College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resource Management (CAFNRM) is part of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. It is located on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, the largest island in the Hawaiian Archipelago. The College opened its doors in the fall of 1975 with the main objective to prepare students for a broad and full understanding of basic factors involved in production, management, processing, distribution, marketing, sales, and services in the field of agricultural sciences. To achieve this goal, CAFNRM offers the Bachelor of Science degree (BS) in three areas of specialization: Animal Health and Management (which includes a pre-veterinary option), Aquaculture, and Tropical Agroecology. To provide a well-balanced education, a good portion of a typical curriculum consists of College of Arts and Sciences courses as well as CAFNRM courses.

CAFNRM also offers academic subject certificates for baccalaureate degree seeking students and non-degree seeking students: A Beekeeping Certificate and an Equine Science Certificate.
