Hiram offers students opportunities to prepare for law school admission. Certain courses, such as American government or those in American Constitutional law, are normally selected by the preponderance of law school candidates not only at Hiram but elsewhere.
At their own initiative and under the auspices of the pre-law adviser, Hiram students have formed their own pre-law club, which has the authority to request funds from student government in order to sponsor various activities. These include excursions to pre-law “caravans” at neighboring schools to meet representatives from law schools and on-campus gatherings with current law students and practicing lawyers, judges and paralegals.
Hiram faculty are eager to advise students on identifying law schools that are a fit and assisting them in the application processes. The Career Center serves as clearinghouse for application forms, catalogues, handbooks, and other printed materials of use to law school candidates.

This includes the processes, principles and structure of government and political institutions within a country, or the nature of the international political system.
Sociology majors study people and the roles they play in society.

Hiram's academic program is designed to provide sociology students with the research tools and techniques essential for performing comprehensive and accurate inquiries into human events within a social context.
