Study Abroad Opportunities
Philosophy majors are expected to spend a semester or year studying overseas. Exciting opportunities are available through Arcadia’s College of Global Studies and are relatively easy to arrange. With prior approval, courses taken at foreign universities can be transferred to Arcadia to fulfill Undergraduate Curriculum requirements, including major requirements. A list of Philosophy and Religion courses that transfer is available from the Chair of the Department.
Generally, the sophomore and junior years are the most convenient time for Arcadia students to study abroad, although the second semester of the freshman year and the first semester of the senior year also are possibilities.
Arcadia University has special arrangements with universities or runs its own programs in China, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Australia, France, Greece, Italy, India, Ireland, South Africa, Spain, New Zealand and Tanzania.
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.
