The academic core of the First-Year Experience revolves around the First-Year Seminar—a small, interactive class where you explore special topics that interest you. Every first-year student takes a First-Year Seminar in his or her first semester at Arcadia University. Class size is limited to approximately 15 students.
Past students have enjoyed class trips to Broadway, museums, farms, cafés, nature parks, Philadelphia, and New York. And they have studied everything from the night sky to Harry Potter to crime scene evidence to the 1960s and more.
