Hiram College

Nearly every culture in the world communicates through music and storytelling. At Hiram College, we embrace that which makes the performing arts unique around the world.

  • Study Abroad Opporunities

    Every few years, a Performing Arts-focused Study Away experience is available. The U.K. 3-week trip has often been that trip. There, students study Shakespeare's life, the passions of another nation, and the experiences of Renaissance artists.
