Who Are Hiram’s Physics Majors?
Students in the physics degree program are, above all else, passionate about math and science. They are ambitious in their career goals, diverse in background and interests, and eager to develop hands-on skills.
Hiram physics majors have the option to participate in the successful dual degree program that grants a Hiram B.A. degree in physics and a B.S.n engineering degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland or Washington University in St. Louis. This allows students passionate about learning in new, high-tech liberal arts to become experts in both physics and engineering, and pursue careers in their field.
About the Physics Degree Program
The Hiram physics major helps students develop critical thinking, problem-solving and quantitative skills that enable them to tackle problems through a multifaceted approach of:
- theoretical, and
Physics majors gain invaluable practice communicating technical topics in both written and oral forms. They frequently work in teams—a structure followed and valued by many employers—to produce solutions that are more thorough and in-depth than any one person could accomplish on his or her own.
