Welcome to Geology at UH Hilo!
Things not so hot where you live? Wouldn’t you rather be outdoors in Hawaii with a field notebook, watching an active volcano erupt? Imagine living in Hawaii surrounded by erupting volcanoes, lush rainforests, high mountain peaks, and the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean. This could be your life if you enroll at the Geology program, or the Natural Science program, at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We offer an affordable undergraduate education with small classes and personalized instruction.
