Students in the minor are expected to develop inquiry skills — such as observation, problem formulation, data collection and critical analysis — and the ability to apply field skills and integrated theory of organismal biology and ecological systems to the assessment of real-world problems.

Hiram's liberal arts curriculum ensures that students approach the education major with the professional preparation needed to move into a career in a variety of educational settings.
The study of history is critical for our understanding of the human experience. Through the study of history, we develop an understanding of who we are, where we came from, how and why our society has changed over time and how humans have interacted with each other and with the natural world. Hiram’s history major prepares students for active citizenship and for informed, thoughtful decision-making throughout their lives.
