At OU’s Italian Center students with no to early intermediate knowledge of Italian are provided with an introductory experience of Italian language and culture while taking a variety of genuine OU coursework. At the cradle of western civilization, students can enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere and study an abundance of ancient art objects close by, while spending a good time with fellow Sooners in a small, quiet, and secure town, untouched by mass tourism.
OUA’s student center is located on the central Corso Italia in a renovated medieval Palazzo. There Sooners can relax in the student lounge, study in the library, work and communicate in a cutting edge PC/Mac lab, and attend classes in beautiful classrooms equipped with modern technology for effective and versatile instruction. This building also houses the administrative offices and the apartment of our Faculty in Residence – allowing for close interaction with and easy access to the OU professor who accompanies the students throughout an academic year.
