Hiram College

The Coherent Core

Hiram aims to have students examine a modern challenge or opportunity through a meaningful set of interconnected courses. To garner students’ interests and help them see how different disciplines approach issues that matter, the New Liberal Arts will provide students the opportunity to take courses that address complex and challenging issues such as:

  1. Global Warming
  2. Artificial Intelligence
  3. The 21st-Century Market Economy
  4. Food, Water, and Healthcare

As students explore a challenge, they will map out ways they can realistically work to remedy or leverage the issue.
