The field of education requires strong communication, collaboration, problem solving, and multicultural competence—that is, many of the skills you’re developing during your Oberlin education.

During the spring ’20 semester, workshops for the Education career community will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: 2/11, 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10, and 3/17.

Possible Paths

While becoming a teacher may be the most obvious form of an educational career, the field is so varied that there are hundreds of different careers that can be accomplished with a basis in education including teaching in-person, online, consulting, administrative, and board member positions.
