The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University provides undergraduates access to over 130 programs abroad taught by Arcadia staff in our 9 Centers overseas or faculty from our international partner institutions. Students can choose programs in Australia, Cuba, England, Greece, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, Spain or Wales. Nearly 3,000 students from over 300 colleges and universities participate in Arcadia's programs each year, studying innovative programs from a wide variety of disciplines. Arcadia is focused on guiding students towards the study abroad program that best suits their personal and academic goals, through learning both inside and outside the classroom. This involves delivering high standards in all aspects of the program, from academic rigor, to the experiential education component of the program and to the student services support given both before and after students travel abroad.
