The Cooper International Learning Center
The Paul & Edith Cooper International Learning Center is a state-of-the-art learning center specializing in foreign-language education, located in Peters Hall on the Oberlin College campus. Also considered the college's language lab, it provides support to students and faculty in the teaching or studying of languages, with a particular focus on the use of technology to aid language learning.
Office of Study Away
The Office of Study Away assists students in selecting appropriate study away programs, understanding the financial implications of studying away, and ensuring that credits earned away will transfer properly. Students interested in studying away for a semester or year can choose from Oberlin-sponsored programs, consortial programs, or over 90 other affiliated programs. In addition, the office helps in the coordination of international winter term group projects.
International Student Resource Center
International Student Resource Center is dedicated to serving the needs of international students by offering a broad range of services and special programming. The office issues and reviews F-1 visa documents and assists students with matters related to their visa status, employment, social security numbers and taxation in the United States, as well as postgraduate educational and employment plans.
International Studies Concentration
The International Studies Concentration is designed to prepare students for careers and pursuits spanning national boundaries. It is grounded in the social sciences (though cross-cultural breadth may be derived from humanities courses) and focused on contemporary issues in order to develop an understanding of the current dominant modes of international interactions, and the global nature and consequences of those interactions.
