Your major will ask you to deepen your knowledge and skills within one discipline. This major should best harness your aptitude and interests as a learner. It’s also a bridge to a career. However, the translation from major to career need not be direct or obvious. All majors offer “transferrable skills” which can be carried into many fields of work. As you work to satisfy your major, you’ll be taking progressively more advanced courses in a single discipline. Altogether, the major represents about one-third of a typical academic program. All majors at Hiram include a “capstone” experience that represents the culmination of your work in your chosen discipline.
