Hawaii is better known for its beaches, surfing and tropical scenery than it is for its educational institutions. Because of its small size and population, there are only a handful of graduate school programs in Hawaii.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa offers a variety of non-MBA master's programs. Eleven percent of the degrees they award are science, technology, engineering or math subjects. There are just over 5,500 graduate students currently attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa, home of the Rainbow Warriors.
The typical early career salary for graduates who earn a master's degree from UH Manoa is about $50,000. Alumni with 10 or more years of experience earn a good chunk more. Getting a master's degree from the University of Hawaii probably won't increase your chances of joining the top 1 percent of earners in the nation. However, master's degree holders report significantly higher job meaning.
