Students in this program gain tremendous opportunities for leadership, learning and professional development, through a series of seminar-style courses with fellow Eclectic Scholars. The courses are based around self-exploration, problem solving, and discussions and projects that span disciplines. Eclectic Scholars spend time inside and outside of class tackling complex issues and form a strong cohort, while gaining an understanding about how their skills and talents within their individual disciplines can cross boundaries.
Hiram’s Emerging Scholars Program gives promising students the boost they need to succeed in college.
The common first-year experience ensures that all new students take select courses that includes a freshman seminar, a humanities course, and a social science course. In these courses, students explore the “Five Cs” – Character, Career, Curriculum, Community, and Calling.
