From the Institution

Hiram College provides students of all backgrounds with an attainable private education that teaches the 21st-century skills needed to thrive professionally and personally in the face of constant change. The College equips all students with the tools and technology necessary to embrace active learning inside the classroom and outside of the classroom with internship, study away, research, and other experiential opportunities that make them highly marketable candidates for their future careers. Furthermore, Hiram is one of only 10 percent of U.S. colleges and universities to be awarded a chapter of the prestigious honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. The College is known for its distinctive Hiram Plan, through which students complete 12 weeks of traditional coursework, take a week-long break, and finish their academic semester with three weeks of intensive study in a single class. Hiram takes another thoughtful approach to higher education through Hiram Connect, linking coursework, internships, study-away explorations, and hands-on learning opportunities. The process encourages students to reflect upon their academic experiences and helps them determine what they want to do professionally. From Zambia to New Zealand, Hiram College also coordinates several study abroad programs each year. Led by Hiram faculty, the curriculum is team-taught and covers multiple areas of study. Students might examine topics like national identity, art and culture, business, and climate change, while immersing themselves in a new culture. The College also offers a varsity athletic program that is part of the North Coast Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III. Located less than three miles from campus, the College's James H. Barrow Biological Field Station provides students with a 550-acre research and educational facility that not only enhances the science and environmental studies programs, but also delivers enrichment and inspiration for students in all majors. The Northwoods Field Station, located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, gives students the opportunity to live off the grid in harmony with nature using a low-consumption lifestyle. Recognized by Colleges of Distinction, The Princeton Review, U.S. News and World Report, and Washington Monthly, Hiram enrolls over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students in academic programs on its Northeast Ohio campus and online.
