Program Overview

Program Description:

The Oslo program offers the opportunity to live in a city made for outdoor enthusiasts- surrounded by fjords and forests, with numerous sports at your fingertips in every season- while enrolled at the University of Oslo in a range of courses taught in English. You may stay for one semester or a full year and choose from courses in the areas of Scandinavian Studies, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, mathematics, Medicine, Medieval studies, Middle East Studies, Nordic Languages, Peace and Conflict Studies, Gender Studies, Education, Law, and Graduate Studies.

Students have the option of taking the 60-hour Introductory Norwegian language Course or a more intensive 84-hour Level 1 Norwegian language Course in addition to their normal study program (included in the USAC program fees). Although most people in Norway speak English, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this option, as it will help you to assimilate better into Norwegian life, and you will find that Norwegians appreciate your effort to speak their language. Students begin their stay in Oslo with an on-site orientation to the university and the Oslo region, as well as social activities. At the conclusion of this program, students begin their regular coursework.

Program fees include tuition, orientation and health insurance.

Setting Description:
Surrounded by hills and fjords, Oslo is the capital and largest city of Norway. Although it is actually more than 1,000 years old, in many ways it appears to be very modern, as various fires through the years forced residents to rebuild the city virtually from scratch. Today it is a city of wide boulevards, parks, museums, and theaters.
