Study Abroad

The reality of today’s entertainment and theatrical production industry is that we work in a global market. This is a point that our program takes very seriously. We work with partners around the world to develop opportunities that will prepare our students for careers around the world. There are multiple opportunities for students to study abroad during their time at OCU. They can be done in exchanges that work within a given academic semester or summer. These opportunities are designed to complement your overall experience.

The BFA in Stage Management currently has an exchange with Rose Bruford College located in London. With this exchange, stage management students have the opportunity to spend the spring semester of their junior year studying at Rose Bruford ( This experience is designed into the curriculum and allows the student to stay on track to graduate in the standard four years.

OCU has a new agreement with the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy. The school offers programs in studio art, fashion design, and architecture that will be of interest to our design students. SRISA ( also offers liberal arts classes that will enable students to fit a full semester abroad into their studies and still complete their degree in four years. We are also developing an OCU faculty led summer program at SRISA for 2020.

Through the Study Abroad Office at OCU, students are able to explore additional opportunities around the world. These types of programs are designed to complement the student experience at OCU by learning more about a specific culture and to prepare OCU Design and Production graduates for the global market.
