Program gives graduate law school head start

Special to Kalamalamaby Han Nee Chong

Shaun Tateishi, ’02, completed 12 concurrent credits during his senior year of undergraduate study at HPU. Taking advantage of the university’s concurrent studies program enabled Tateishi to obtain his Master of Arts in Communication degree in one year (2003).

On graduating, Tateishi was awarded a full, three-year Dean’s Scholarship to attend Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, Calif.

“ Law school scholarships are extremely competitive,” Tateishi said. “I believe that succeeding in HPU’s Concurrent Program helped me win my scholarship.”

The Concurrent Program allows eligible HPU undergraduates to enroll in certain graduate courses and earn both graduate and undergraduate credit simultaneously for the same course. A maximum of 12 semester hours may be earned in the program.

The concurrent experience introduced Tateishi to HPU graduate program in communication. He enjoyed the academic rigor of the graduate-level courses, Tateishi said, finding them to be “eye opening and mind expanding.” He added that they stimulated him to achieve his full potential.

Tateishi garnered a number of honors at HPU, including Delta Mu Delta and Alpha Chi National Honor Societies, a Communication Scholarship, and the National Dean’s List.

For more information on the Concurrent Program, call HPU’s Center for Graduate Studies at 543-8034 or e-mail graduate@hpu.edu.
