Introduction to the DepartmentOWU Education Department

Ohio Wesleyan has been educating teachers for more than 100 years. This experience confirms our belief that the most creative and effective teachers are prepared at strong liberal arts colleges such as ours. Our program emphasizes a solid theoretical base and practical experience.

Department Features

  • From your first course onward, you learn about the responsibilities and rewards of the teaching profession by working directly with children in area schools, community centers, and in Ohio Wesleyan's Early Childhood Center, a laboratory preschool program.
  • Ohio Wesleyan offers programs preparing students for teacher licensure at the early childhood, elementary school, middle school, and high school levels.
  • Beginning with your first education course, you'll spend a minimum of 100 hours in local school classrooms observing and assisting teachers and teaching lessons based on ideas developed in methods courses.
