Hiram College


Educational Studies Major


All Educational Studies majors complete an internship that is aligned with their chosen area of concentration, typically during their junior or senior year. This experiential learning opportunity not only enhances the student’s resume, it also provides an opportunity for students to decide if the internship experience is what they really want to do with their degree.

Education Club

The Hiram College Education Club is a student-run organization that works to promote the welfare and ongoing education of both children and adults, to coordinate and facilitate ongoing and one-time educational programs for Hiram students and to work cooperatively with other organizations.

The Education Club is a great way to meet classmates and professors, socialize with friends and work to help pre-K through 12th-grade students, schools and teachers. The Education Club is responsible for social events and service activities related to education, including sponsoring the Fall Education Open House and the Spring Picnic.

The Education Club advisor is Kelly NewVine.  Membership is open to all students.
