Research and Study Abroad Opportunities
Students are encouraged to seek research opportunities on campus with our faculty. In addition to the on-campus research opportunities available at Hiram, our students and faculty participate in numerous off-campus field programs to locations such as the secluded Himalayan Buddhist country of Bhutan, Costa Rica, Malaysia, the Smoky Mountains, and the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. Hiram biology students are also encouraged to pursue internship and field research opportunities with external organizations. These internships are as diverse as our students' interests and have ranged from a study of dominance in all-male gorilla groups at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to a study of florescent bacteria in marine organisms at the University of Hawaii.
Seniors share their internship experiences to the Hiram community at the semi-annual APEX presentations.
Biology faculty have led trips all over the world. For up-to-date study abroad courses, please visit the Study Abroad website.
