HILO — University of Hawaii students protesting the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope atop Maunakea are expected to have class options allowing them to remain on the mountain.
The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported Monday that a list of more than 200 courses students can take either online or via distance learning has become available.
The majority of the classes are offered through UH-Manoa, while others are offered by the UH-Hilo and Hawaii Community College.
Course topics include Hawaiian religion, mythology, culture and language, Pacific Island literature, business, creative writing, and philosophy.
An assistant professor of performing arts at UH-Hilo is offering a course and says teachers can create independent study courses during the university add/drop period.
She says students can also earn credit for doing independent projects.
