Hiram College

A firm foundation for the future

A Hiram education ensures that students have been exposed to studies across many disciplines and graduate with the critical thinking skills needed to enter any career field. A minor in natural history will complement concentrated study in any major by exposing students to the natural systems that form the foundation of all life and human society and offering them the opportunity to discover new ideas buried within nature’s rich encyclopedia.

Types of careers our students pursue

A natural history minor provides Hiram students with a unique perspective on the world and a valuable skillset that can be applied to any career path. Want to invent something novel for human convenience? Velcro® is based on principles of seed dispersal. Want to solve some of the greatest challenges of our times like how to provide clean water to all people? Nature has some solutions. Want to capture beauty or challenge people to think differently about life through art? Nature is an age-old source of inspiration. Want to follow in the footsteps of great philosophers and scientists? Nature has always been the place to begin. Take your natural history minor with you as you walk a path towards law, art, education, research, management, or medicine and see your dreams expand.
