Pathways to Study Abroad: Communications
Communications majors are encouraged to spend a semester or a year studying abroad. Exciting opportunities are available and are relatively easy to arrange through Arcadia’s College of Global Studies. Communications is a global field and concern. Studying in a different environment and learning about the communications processes in a wider context are essential to a student in communications. Undoubtedly, this opportunity enhances the career training and understanding of Communications majors.
Communications majors who plan to study abroad must do so during the sophomore or junior years only. With prior approval, students may take courses to fulfill any University-wide requirement. Students must plan study abroad programs at least a year in advance to ensure finding appropriate courses that will transfer to their requirements. See more about internships abroad on the next page.
Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, students should consult with their advisers as soon as possible and make their intentions known to the Department Chair and the Associate Dean of International Affairs.
