Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Study
Hiram's M.A. program is designed for intellectually curious students who want to engage with challenging multi-disciplinary material.
Master's classes at Hiram are offered on alternating Saturdays so students can balance professional and personal responsibilities.
Classrooms at Hiram are dynamic learning environments where small groups of students engage actively with their professors and peers.
Hiram's per-credit-hour cost is below that of most graduate programs in Northeast Ohio with a flat semester fee that covers advising, registration and access to all campus amenities.
Courses for Professional Educators
The Office of Professional and Graduate Studies offers graduate level courses for Professional Educators during the summer (GEDU courses.) These classes help teachers in the K-12 arena complete their continuing education requirements. Most classes will meet on Hiram College's beautiful campus where small class sizes enhance the learning experience.
Comments from professional educators taking our classes:
Sign Language for Teachers:
"Very useful for all grade levels and subject levels – can be adapted for use in any classroom."
Biological Diversity and Ecological Sampling:
"Learned very usable teaching techniques which I will use and share with colleagues."
It's Alive – Science in the Schoolyard:
"I have learned a lot that I can and will do with the classroom outdoors – numerous activities, being outdoors in all seasons, using investigative activities, looking at the standards with a different perspective."
Multisensory Structured Language: The Orton-Gillingham Approach:
"I can immediately see uses for this in my classroom to help my seventh grade struggling readers who would otherwise fall through the cracks. I can see how I could very easily help them fill in the gaps."
