School of Liberal Arts (SLA)

Michael Sander, Interim Dean

The School of Liberal Arts offers a broad range of degrees, concentrations, certificates and courses that will prepare you for either a college degree or the workforce.

We offer degrees that parallel those courses offered at a 4-year institution. These include:

  • General Arts
  • Commercial Arts
  • Music Business
  • Photography
  • Teacher Education
  • Humanities
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Fine and Performing Arts
  • Human Services

We feature hundreds of courses that complement the College’s technical curricula and build on the General Education competencies of communication, problem solving, and accessing and interpreting information, thus preparing you for an ever-changing world. Bolstered by faculty dedicated to your success, we present a wide variety of academic options for your consideration and completion.

Findlay students may have to travel to the Toledo-area campus on occasion to make use of special facilities, or to take more specialized classes.   Students may also have to take some classes online or in a hybrid format to complete their program of choice.  These situations may be minimized and/or managed through proactive planning and regular interaction with the student’s advisor.

Successful completion of a program of study at the College does not guarantee licensure, certification, employment in relevant occupation, or transferability/admission to other educational institutions or programs.

Owens Community College prepares students to become professionals in the fields of education and social work by providing knowledge, skills and values that reflect the highest standards of quality in the fields, and form a foundation for lifelong learning.

A primary emphasis is to develop attitudes and values in students indicative of caring, competent and committed educators. The program supports children, families, and the community by educating entry level, transfer, and returning students in current professional practices and theory through classroom, clinical and field experiences.

Our students are prepared to begin their careers with a strong knowledge base and the ability to reflect and continuously improve their practices. One of our primary goals is to provide competent and caring teachers and social workers.

The Department of Teacher Education and Human Services has developed a strong network of community partners who have been crucial to our success. Our community partners assist us in the learning process by providing field sites for students to integrate their theoretical learning from the classroom into practice. They also serve as a resource by serving on our Advisory Boards.
