Semester and Year Long Programs
While summer programs offer a taste of life in Italy, enrolling at OU in Arezzo for a semester or full year is beneficial in many ways. Students who choose a semester or year program will:
- Immerse more fully in day-to-day Italian life
- Learn Italian language skills
- Develop a deeper understanding of Italian culture and history
- Build confidence, cultural competency and communication skills
OUA semester/year students are provided with an introduction to Italian language and culture while taking a variety of OU courses in English. Prior knowledge of Italian is not required, though all OUA students will enroll in an Italian language course. Our curriculum takes advantage of the riches Italy has to offer, and students study art, history and industry up close by touring museums, churches, businesses and historical sites.
Students enrolled for a semester or year at OUA will live in the Kathleen and Francis Rooney Family Residential Learning Center in the heart of Arezzo's old city, or you can request a homestay with an Italian host family.
