Hiram College has a unique academic schedule which allows our faculty to lead field courses off campus within the United States. Many of our faculty have taught courses in Alaska, the Southwest, Florida, and the Great Smoky Mountains.
The program includes studies dealing with marine organisims, including Black Horn Snails, Mangrove Periwinkle Snails, common marine birds, and common marine vegetation.
The Galapagos Islands
This Study Abroad program focuses on the natural history of the Galapagos Islands, which figure prominently in the writing of Charles Darwin.
Additionally, biology faculty also lead other study abroad trips all over the world. For up-to-date study abroad courses, please visit the Study Abroad page.
Hiram is home to two field stations that allow students a unique and valuable opportunity to complete hands-on research as part of their curriculum, or as part of their student employment.
