Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I do not live on or near campus. I do not know about the campus or social life. I have had great success gathering information from the faculty. I have enjoyed my experiences at Arcadia thus far.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program for the working professional. Class meets once a week on the same day for your entire program. Two one-week trips abroad are also included in the price of the tuition. So far the professors and classmates have been great. We all have such diverse backgrounds that we learn as much from each other as we do from the course material.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Studying peace is a lifelong dream. As a war survivor, I believe that this program would help Me a lot to make a change in society. The course is rich I structure and it entails concepts about peace and conflict resolutions that are meaningful to society. However, travelling to different conflict historic areas will be a challenge as some might require extra fund fro. The students. Overalliys a good program that will help me a lot.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2014

The ESL Certificate program can be finished in a summer, and it is my only Arcadia experience. The professors are very helpful, which is beneficial because the workload is fairly intense in such a short period of time. It's hard to retain everything if you obtain the certificate in one summer, but you do learn a lot of information! The tuition is a little high.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

Arcadia University's graduate program is truly great. Classes are small, and graduate students receive ample one on one attention with academic advisors and other professors. Therefore, you really feel like the faculty is personally interested in your comments, questions, and concerns. Arcadia also offers many study abroad opportunities, graduate assistantship positions, as well as a flexible course schedule, that a student can specifically tailor to their own interests. Overall Arcadia has proved to be great place to continue my education at the graduate level.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: My graduate program is unique from other International Relations programs because it offers a built in study abroad and internship portion of the program. This provides you with many opportunities to build networks for future careers as well as get the hands on experience that future employers are looking for. It also has flexible course schedules and many of the professors are easily accessible and very helpful. Cons: Unfortunately the program has a small staff so there are only so many professional perspectives that can be offered within the program itself, Course offerings can sometimes be limited to what the staff has an expertise in/ professor availability.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of Arcadia's graduate program are too overwhelming to list, so I will just articulate a couple. My favorite aspect of Arcadia's graduate program is the availability of hands on experience in the forensic science field. Another pro is the friendliness of my fellow students and professors. The con of Arcadia's graduate program is that it is expensive.
