Welcome to OUCIP
Located on the sprawling and picturesque campus of Osmania University and surrounded by several institutions of higher education and research, OUCIP offers an ideal site for academic interaction and exchange of ideas across disciplines. The serene surroundings, easy accessibility, and excellent institutional and infrastructural support make OUCIP a perfect academic ashram for scholars to read, write, and reflect.
Conceived primarily as the international face of Osmania University, OUCIP came into existence in August 2006, after the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, handed over the management and administration of American Studies Research Centre (ASRC) to Osmania University. OUCIP is housed in the building complex of ASRC and has inherited its academic and infrastructural strengths. However, OUCIP has broadened its scope and added new fields of study from humanities and social sciences to American Studies.
ACAS (Advanced Centre for American Studies) is a UGC-funded research centre recently established at Osmania University Centre for International Programmes (OUCIP) to promote quality research in the field of American Studies.
To develop into a multi-disciplinary research and resources centre for a comprehensive and critical understanding of the United States of America.
