Summer Special Programs

Education, Creative Writing and More

Special Programs are a selection of unique offerings that delve into relevant topics within particular academic disciplines or areas of study. These engaging, specialized programs, organized below by their core discipline or subject matter, are designed to benefit your educational and career development. Students are evaluated on a research project that includes a survey and interview format, including extensive research on potential Arcadia University contributing speakers.

Here is our current list of programs. Additional courses and programs will be listed here as they become available. Please check back periodically, or request more information.
