Hiram College

The Emerging Scholars Scholar Curriculum

As Hiram College does not offer remedial courses, you will enroll in classes that are offered to all students in the general education program. However, your faculty advisor and program Director will work closely with you to select courses that are a good fit for your individual interests and academic fit. In addition, you will be required to enroll in two student development courses—STDV 195 Effective and Reflective Learning and STDV 280 Making

Connections—two sections of which have been reserved for Emerging Scholars only. A more detailed description of the required STDV courses is below:
