Traditional Undergraduate

educational focus

Hiram College recognizes that while the traditional teaching license meets the interests of many students, others may wish to pursue a background in education that will allow them to teach in a wide variety of non-school settings. The educational studies major will offer students the opportunity to engage in experiences that will prepare them for challenges faced by education and educators of the 21st century.

The Educational Studies major has been specifically designed for students who want to deepen their understanding of the learning and teaching process, yet seek careers in non-school settings. Our educational studies major is an interdisciplinary program. Students seeking jobs in non-school settings benefit from portions of the essential knowledge and skills associated with the field of education.
