Hiram College


You’ve found a new home

Hiram College isn’t your stereotypical coeducational liberal arts college. It’s eclectic and energized. A compatibly diverse student body who prioritizes principles over parties, friends over flash, quirkiness over conformity.

Opportunities await curious minds and passionate spirits

When you start your journey at Hiram, you’ll quickly find that you are amongst a family of 1,100+ people – all unique – located in the historic Western Reserve region of Ohio.

Hiram is nationally respected. Its ability to offer a distinctive learning environment, focusing on close student-faculty interactions, international study opportunities and experiential learning provide the landscape for distraction-free learning.

Programs for everyone

You may think that you don’t fit into the typical college demographic. Maybe you already have a full-time job, or you have a busy family life. Don’t worry! Hiram has developed options for you, too, such as Weekend College. This is designed for adult learners – the first of its kind in Ohio – and enables students to earn their degree in four years by taking classes on alternate weekends. The College also offers a master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, undergraduate completion programs at three local community college sites and has two fully online degree programs.
