Education Studies

Program Type:
  • Concentration

Oberlin College does not have an education department, yet we offer undergraduates various opportunities to explore this field of study. We help students understand and engage in education as a part of the overall liberal arts experience; participate in courses, programs, and community service that connect to local schools; and consider their interest in careers in education.
