StudiOC offers several semester-long courses each academic year with topics that span Oberlin’s academic spectrum.
Oberlin college and conservatory faculty developed learning communities comprised of two or three individually instructed courses from different academic departments clustered around a common theme. These theme-based learning communities are multidisciplinary, which encourages inquiry, creativity, and collaboration for both instructors and students.
