Hiram College physics majors are well-prepared to pursue numerous tracks after Hiram including graduate study, teaching in the sciences or working in a high tech career.
We offer a major and a minor in physics, and participate in a Dual Degree program granting a Hiram degree in physics (or the appropriate major) and an engineering degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
All physics courses are geared towards developing quantitative reasoning and problem solving skills and embrace the idea that to learn physics, one must actively do physics. We also offer a number of general education courses that seek to raise the level of scientific literacy of all students at Hiram College. All of our courses emphasize the strong interconnections between the scientific disciplines.
