The addition of these academic programs reflects Arcadia’s commitment to providing students with a customized education that features interdisciplinary coursework and hands-on learning opportunities. Many of the new offerings incorporate Arcadia’s top-ranked study abroad programs (#1 in Pennsylvania and #11 nationally, according to U.S. News & World Report), and aspects that led to U.S. News ranking Arcadia as among the Most Innovative Colleges.

“These upcoming academic programs allow students even more options to earn degrees at Arcadia University, while preparing them for sustained career success,” said Jeff Rutenbeck, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs at Arcadia University. “We carefully craft programs and fields of study that address the rapidly changing world in which we live, and provide students with what they need to remain flexible and innovative in their professional careers.” 

All courses are taught by expert faculty at Arcadia’s Glenside campus in a small, personalized setting. The programs continue with Arcadia’s focus on preparing students for career success: 97 percent of recent Arcadia students secured jobs or graduate program placements within 6 to 9 months of earning their degrees.
