The Science of Learning Translated into the
Art of Teaching
The most inspired teaching happens when we understand how students learn and apply this in the classroom. That’s the guiding philosophy in Arcadia’s Education Programs, where established scientific theories about learning are reflected in everything students do.
As an aspiring teacher at Arcadia, you will:
- Practice and fine-tune your teaching skills through mentored teaching practice, starting in your first semester
- Enjoy a sense of camaraderie and idea sharing with other students and faculty in Arcadia’s close-knit undergraduate program, and
- Have an opportunity to explore global learning and teaching experiences through Arcadia’s accessible and acclaimed study abroad program
When you complete your undergraduate studies, you will not only be practiced in the art of teaching but you’ll understand the science behind it. That will put you on the path to becoming not just a good teacher but a great one.
About the Education Programs
Arcadia’s Education Programs provides a highly interactive and individualized learning experience for students pursuing a career in teaching. Programs are designed around established theories on how students learn; this knowledge is then applied to every aspect of the undergraduate experience—from classwork and activities on campus to mentored teaching in real classrooms, which begins in the first semester. Learning is reinforced through self-evaluation and support from a close-knit student and faculty community. Also, students gain global perspectives and teaching experience through study abroad. Add-on certification is offered through five-year 3+2 programs (combined B.A. plus master’s degree).
