Prospective Students

The College of Wooster offers a wonderful opportunity to pursue a liberal arts education while seeking a teaching license in a number of content areas and age ranges. We believe the combined approach of liberal arts study and professional education is an excellent way to prepare capable, confident, and professional educators. Depending on your area of interest, Music Education is a major at the College, while education in all other licensure areas is not a major. However, students who complete any of the Teacher Education Programs are fully credentialed to teach in the state of Ohio (with reciprocity in other states), and most complete the program and graduate in four years.
