Graduate Education Programs at Otterbein University

Otterbein’s Graduate programs in Education are small by design, forward thinking, and practical for the teaching professional.  At Otterbein, instructors and classmates become your colleagues.  Our class sizes are small and focused on community.  Otterbein instructors capitalize on the small class sizes, building professional relationships with students, and creating supportive learning environments to inspire students to apply what they learn in the classroom immediately.  Otterbein offers graduate education programs for licensed teachers and those interested in initial teacher licensure.
