ARCADIA ADMISSION PROCESS

GLOBAL, INTEGRATIVE, PERSONAL

Arcadia University provides a distinctively global, integrative, and personal learning experience for intellectually curious undergraduate and graduate students in preparation for a life of scholarship, service, and professional contribution.

Global Perspective

Jessica Aguilera '16

International Studies/Public Health

“Taking courses at Arcadia in the Historical and Political Studies department really gave me an interest in studying abroad, experiencing different cultures, and learning more about different parts of the world. Through Arcadia’s strong study abroad program, I was able to go to London, Ireland, and other places in Europe.”

Integrative Learning

Anil "AJ" Beephan '16

Political Science

“Professors steered me in the right direction for internships, which was a key help in starting my career. Because of one of the internships I received through Arcadia, I was able to connect with the director of operations for the New York State Senate, and I secured my position through that connection.”

Personal Attention

Dalaena Cline '16

Biology/Spanish

“I chose Arcadia because of the personal attention: I wanted a chance to really get to work with people in my field, so I could get a feel for what I wanted to do in the future. From the minute I stepped on campus, the professors were friendly and wanted to get to know me.”
