How large are the classes at OU?
The average class size at OU is just under 32 students. In fact, only 4% of our classes have over 100 students.
The format of the class will depend on the nature of the subject matter and the method of presentation selected by the professor. Many classes are small: most language and Honors classes are around 20 students and many upper-division classes are around 40 students. Other classes combine a large lecture and small discussion groups. As a freshman, your son or daughter will probably have a mixture of classes in terms of size and format.
All freshman English composition classes are limited to 19 students. OU also boasts a 18:1 student to faculty ratio, which ensures your student will get the personal attention he or she deserves.
