Arcadia University - Gateway to the World


Arcadia University, recognized as a leader in study abroad and as a pioneer in international education for more than 60 years, is committed to preparing the leaders of tomorrow through immersion with cultures, places, people, and languages around the world—and to meeting the challenges and solving the problems of that changing world through campus internationalization. The Arcadia Promise of global perspective, integrated learning and personal attention is realized through a culture of engagement where students, faculty, staff and alumni actively participate in and make meaningful contributions to the academic, social and civic life on campus, in the region, and around the world.

Arcadia University is a top-ranked, comprehensive private university preparing graduates for careers in a rapidly changing, increasingly diverse global economy. More than 2,200 undergraduate and 1,800 graduate students study at our Glenside, King of Prussia, and Christiana (Del.) campuses in more than 80 fields of study. In addition, Arcadia has centers worldwide, through The College of Global Studies, that deliver more than 120 quality study abroad programs in 78 cities to thousands of students a year from other U.S. colleges and universities.

Arcadia’s Undergraduate Curriculum challenges students in all disciplines to explore and contribute to the world. Arcadia’s graduate programs challenge students in every discipline to use evidence-based research and project-based learning to find solutions to today’s issues. Arcadia is distinct in that all of our students—both graduate and undergraduate— engage in integrative, real-world learning opportunities such as internships, evidence-based research, service learning, interdisciplinary study, problem-based learning, and co-curricular learning experiences that expand beyond the traditional classroom.

With the world as their classroom, Arcadia students are prepared to lead in a changing global society.
