In 2002 the University of Hawai'i at Hilo (UHH) established a Master's Degree program in the study of the Hawaiian Language (Ōlelo Hawaiʻi), and then in 2006 established a PhD program in the same subject.

This made UHH the first university in the country to offer a doctorate in a language that is native to the U.S.
