Class Visits and Faculty Lessons

College Faculty Lecture

Oberlin prepares its students for informed, creative, and productive lives through close connections with professors. In fact, faculty here are ranked among the top in the US for undergraduate teaching. In this lecture, Professor of Psychology and Environmental Studies Cindy Frantz considers the question, “Why are people sometimes irrational, inconsistent, and blind to basic facts?”

Conservatory Faculty Lessons

At Oberlin, our faculty are a big reason why the conservatory is so special. These celebrated teaching artists and educators are completely invested in undergraduate education. While we are unable to accommodate in-person lessons on campus, we always encourage you to interact with our faculty to find out for yourself if Oberlin Conservatory is for you. Please feel free to email them for opportunities to have a virtual lesson. We recommend you attach a musical résumé when emailing so that our faculty can learn more about you.
