Oberlin Students & Faculty

As a teaching museum on the Oberlin College campus, the Allen provides significant opportunities for students in all academic majors.

We provide significant opportunities for students in any academic discipline, and for professors who want to integrate art into their courses.

Embrace the opportunities to learn with outstanding artworks in the museum collection. Staff members in our Office of Academic Programs are eager to facilitate the use of the collection as a teaching tool and the galleries as a learning site. Works in the collection are relevant to any academic discipline.
