Hiram College

Study Abroad

Hiram College coordinates three to four study abroad programs each year. Students who embark on these programs return to find they’ve discovered new purpose and meaning in both their academic studies and their future callings. Unlike many colleges that outsource study abroad trips or coordinate them through third parties, our own faculty members plan and lead each trip. Most programs are team-taught and cover multiple areas of study. You might examine topics like national identity, art and culture, business and the economy and climate change – all while immersing yourself in a new culture. Each program’s academic curriculum incorporates sight-seeing, visits with locals and stops at popular tourist destinations.

Curriculum-Connected, Future-Focused

Our study abroad programs reflect the Hiram College approach to the liberal arts: They span disciplines, relate back to current issues and are relevant to the classes students will complete when they return to campus.

All of our own three-week-plus trips count toward the experiential/hands-on Connect requirement (for students entering as freshmen Fall 2015 and later). Upon returning from your experience abroad, you will reflect upon how the experience has helped you understand your major and coursework, how it has influenced your future profession or vocation, how it has prompted you to contribute more fully to the world, and more.
