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.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011

There are a lot of unique features of this program, including its emphasis on multiculturalism and ability to focus on trauma. The program is expensive, however, and does not offer scholarships to its masters level students.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Arcadia is such an impressive school, with a remarkably proactive approach to education. The professors aren't simply academics who have read hundreds of books about their chose fields, they have lived, breathed and experienced the material they teach. Arcadia is #1 in the United States for study abroad programs, and it is even a requirement for many degrees. You do get what you pay for, however. Seeing that Arcadia is a top-notch private university, the cost of attendance can be somewhat higher than a public or state school, particularly where living expenses are concerned. The area is beautiful, the campus is intuitively designed to meet student needs, and the education and experienced gained here is incomparable.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I completed two degrees at Arcadia University. The financial aid I received as an undergrad was stellar. While I was able to receive Federal loans to finance my graduate eduaction for my first MA, as well as my current program, there is apparently no financial assistance available for grad students from the University itself.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Probably one of the best genetic counseling programs in the country Cons: small school, not many resources around the school

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Graduate school does not quiet allow you to work full time. Which means that one must take out loans to survive. But overall the experience attaining more knowledge, and becoming an expert in a certain field is a perfect fit for me and I am enjoying every minute of it.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

One pro of my graduate program is that it has connected me with people from various countries and with people offering various employment opportunities. Some cons of my program is that is it small, the job market is weak and the school is not well known.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

One pro is that my graduate program has a diverse student population. The greater University does not. One con is that the program is small and not many people know about it. School needs to build reputation.
