Pathways to Study Abroad: Interdisciplinary Science
Many Study Abroad Opportunities Available to Interdisciplinary Science Majors
Interdisciplinary majors are encouraged to spend a semester or year studying overseas. Exciting opportunities are available through the University’s College of Global Studies and are relatively easy to arrange. With prior approval, courses taken at foreign universities can be transferred to Arcadia to fulfill Undergraduate Curriculum, including major, requirements. A list of interdisciplinary courses that transfer is available from the Chair of the Department.
Generally, the sophomore and junior years are the most convenient time for Arcadia students to study abroad, although the second semester of the first year and the first semester of the senior year also are possibilities.
Arcadia University has special arrangements with universities or runs its own programs in China, England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, Australia, France, India, Greece, Ireland, Korea, New Zealand, South Africa and Tanzania. Tuition and room cost the same as on the Glenside campus, and financial aid applies.
Visit the University’s Web site for Pathways to Study Abroad (www.arcadia.edu/pathways) and suggested course sequences. Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, they 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.
