Although minors are not required for graduation, many students choose one. A minor area of study consists of courses specified by each department. Typically, minors consist of five or six courses, over half of which must be taken at Hiram College.
Why pursue a minor?
Minors allow you to pursue areas of interest that your major alone won’t cover. They can help supplement your major-related coursework, help you become a more well-rounded and accomplished student, and communicate to potential employers that you have a diverse knowledge base and the drive to continue learning.
