Content Area Programs (CAP) and GEDU for Professional Educators

High school educators can become certified to teach at the baccalaureate level for College Credit Plus programs through Hiram College’s new content area programs in biology, history and English.

Hiram’s Content Area Programs (CAP) are offered through the Master of Arts degree in interdisciplinary studies. They are discipline-specific, 18-credit hour programs taught by Ph.D. faculty.

Each CAP will offer courses each summer, fall and spring terms, with multiple convenient start times. Courses can be completed in as few as 15 months. Early credentialing and approval to teach courses as Hiram College adjunct faculty before CAP completion must be approved by the Hiram College academic dean. Courses will be offered either at Hiram College or at the Educational Service Center (ESC) of Cuyahoga County. Most will be taught either in an intensive (summer), or hybrid (on the ground and online) format.

Credits can be counted toward the Hiram College Master of Arts degree in interdisciplinary studies. Please consult with the Hiram College Office of Professional and Graduate Studies for more details.

TUITION: The CAP program cost is $495 per credit hour; ESC district faculty may participate for a discounted rate of $420 per credit hour. Participants not in need of master’s credit hours may take this as a professional development course with reduced tuition of $225 per credit hour.
