As Arcadia University expands its commitment to the full integration of global study within the life and academic mission of the University, The College of Global Studies will continue to uphold the University’s mission to prepare students for life and service in a global society.
With over 60 years of leadership and innovation in international education, The College of Global Studies offers over 100 semester, full year, and short-term study abroad programs for undergraduates (including first year students) and graduates in 14 countries. Adding to this range of programming, the College will emphasize special focused study and research programs, graduate degree programs, certificate programs, extensive co-curricular programming, internships, faculty and student exchanges, and service learning projects.
The University has also established a center for research and assessment within The College. The Research and Assessment Center will provide a place for Arcadia faculty and scholars from around the world, as well as those from other institutions, to collaborate on research initiatives. The work of the Center will provide a research foundation and agenda for future program development and initiatives both for Arcadia University and the wider field of international education.
