Although there is no undergraduate department of education at Oberlin, undergraduate students have various opportunities to engage with understandings of education as a part of the liberal arts, participate in courses that offer connections to local schools, and assess their interest in teaching and other careers in education. The Education Studies Committee has identified courses, listed below, that are related to the study of education. Included are courses concerning the role of education in society, education as a profession, and educational pedagogy. The Committee encourages students to consider these courses, along with a wide variety of other liberal arts and sciences courses, to prepare for careers in education policy, graduate work in education fields including teacher certification,  and/or entry into the teaching profession.   It is also possible for students to gain supervised experience in tutoring and classroom teaching. In addition to standard courses, opportunities exist in many departments for private readings and winter term projects related to education.  Members of the Education Studies Committee can help guide students to appropriate resource for graduate school and employment opportunities.  Students may also wish to consult he Office of Career Services (see their web site: The Bonner Center for Service and Learning also has information about internship opportunities.
