Health professionals use ethical judgment, compassionate communication and sound decision-making skills just as much as they use their scientific expertise. That’s why students who are interested in health care should pursue Hiram College’s interdisciplinary biomedical humanities degree program – the first of its kind in the United States.
Biomedical Humanities is one of Hiram’s top major choices for future health professionals. The biomedical humanities major couples an intensive science core with equally rigorous study in the humanities for the purpose of exploring the intersections of medicine, science, literature and culture.
4-Year Undergraduate Degree
About the Program
The major’s relational core prepares students for the interpersonal and group-level interactions that are quintessential to health and healthcare delivery. Collectively, our coursework provides students with a broad perspective on twenty-first-century healthcare. This program offers both social and humanistic aspects of health care with a curriculum that meets most requirements for medical school.
