Gen Ed Courses
Every Semester is Unique
Art History is an OU upper division gen ed course, along with other credit-bearing courses offered each semester such as World Music, History, and Italian Film.
Arezzo Post WWII
In spring 2020 Dr. Rob Griswold was at #ouinarezzo
teaching "History: America and WWII" with a focus on how Arezzo and Italy were involved in the war. The class took a tour with local #arezzo guide Axel. He taught them about how Arezzo was affected by WWII and how the citizens fled. After the war some areas of the city were re-built. They saw and learned about Piazza Grande, the towers, the Duomo, Prato park, the palace, and more. Arezzo has a great history and we’re so proud students get to learn about their city!
Integrating italian culture with language
The @giostradelsaracino is this weekend and today #ouasooners visited the headquarters of the Rooney Family Center neighborhood, #portadelforo! They had the opportunity to learn about the Arezzo Joust and its traditions, as well as have a first-hand look into @portadelforo’s equipment!
Art History Presentations
Bravo to Renaissance Art History students for beginning their presentations yesterday for their final projects. Taught by Director Kirk Duclaux, the art history class students pick a topic that they’ve explored at the end of each semester to be presented to him and their classmates. The “symposium” began today and will continue next week. Congratulations #ouasooners studying art history in Italy! #ouinarezzo #ouafall18
An enhanced experience
All students who study at #ouinarezzo take an Italian course of their choice that fits in with their preferences and degree path. Pictured here is one of the two local Italian instructors, Antonio, teaching #ouafall18 students vital language skills to make their semester even more enjoyable. Learning some Italian gives these
#ouasooners an opportunity to use it and connect more in the community. Student Mackenzee Hester says, “Italian class gives me a connection and has enhanced my experience in Italy by giving me the tools I need to navigate! From learning about history, to learning Italian in a very usable way, I am able to transition to Arezzo very well, and use some of my new skills in the process!” #featurefriday
