About the Office
Dr. Sandra Hordis, Director, provides oversight for Arcadia’s growing offshore programs, such as those in Paris, and takes a leadership role in developing and expanding the joint- and dual-degree programs that Arcadia has been developing with universities in several countries.
Arcadia University proudly offers complete degree programs through several partners in cities such as Paris and Shanghai. At these educational sites, students take part in the Arcadia degree curriculum, taught by Arcadia faculty and their designees. Many students in Arcadia’s programs will have opportunities to study abroad and experience Arcadia’s global perspective. Students graduate with an Arcadia University degree in their field of study.
Joint- and Dual-Degree Programs
Arcadia University has joined with other universities around the world to offer 3 + 2-year dual-degree programs. In these joint programs, students spend their first three years studying at our partner institutions. In the fourth year, students travel to the Arcadia University campus in Glenside to complete their undergraduate study and graduate with a bachelor’s degree. In the final year of the program, students complete the graduate curriculum, graduating in the fifth year with a master’s degree in their field of study.
