In addition to completing the requirements for a broad, integrated liberal arts education at Ohio Wesleyan, the Educational Studies Minor is a non-license option. This minor is for those students who want to learn more about education, child development, and/or the teaching profession, but do not want to work towards a teaching license.

The teacher preparation program is based on current theories and research about teaching and learning. The Education Department adheres to standards that address issues related to the value and recognition of student diversity, to the depth of teachers' knowledge of content and pedagogy, and to the need for teachers to use a wide repertoire of instructional skills and approaches to plan, implement, and assess learning with multiple sources of data, including a variety of formal and informal strategies used to support and evaluate the processes and products of learning. In addition, the program provides varied educational and professional opportunities for teacher preparation students to learn through experiences with a wide range of verbal, visual, technological, and creative media, to  participate in classrooms that function as communities of learners, and to reflect on their own and others' processes of learning and teaching practices.
