Study Abroad Opportunities
For Media and Communication Majors
Media and Communication majors are encouraged to spend a semester or a year studying abroad. Exciting opportunities are available and are relatively easy to arrange through Arcadia’s College of Global Studies. Media and Communication is a global field. Studying in a different environment and learning about the communication processes in a wider context are essential to a student in this field.
Media and Communication majors who plan to study abroad must do so during the sophomore or junior years only. With prior approval, students may take courses to fulfill any University-wide requirement. Students must plan study abroad programs at least a year in advance to ensure finding appropriate courses for their concentrations.
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 Office of Study Away ((215) 572-8514), which is located on the first floor of Taylor Hall.
For Global Media Majors
The Global Media major is a Majors Abroad Program (MAP), which requires one year of study abroad. Students consult with their advisers and Chair of the Department to prepare a plan of studying abroad in one of the specialized areas to complete the degree.
