Undergraduate Curriculum

At Arcadia, you tailor your path through the undergraduate curriculum around your interests, as you develop expertise in a field. At the same time, you broaden your educational scope as you take classes beyond your major to develop wider understandings and knowledge.

Expertise and Exploration

All the classes you take aim at expanding your mind, encouraging the development of intellectual practices and areas of inquiry that you carry across the curriculum into the workplace and life. Your education doesn't stop with classes; it’s designed with opportunities, including faculty-mentored research, internships, creative activity, and experiential learning, in mind.

At, Arcadia how you learn is just as important as what you learn.


Discover Your Purpose

The curriculum enables you to discover your purpose and your passions. You are therefore encouraged to pursue activities designed to offer you a variety of experiences and room to grow intellectually and personally during your undergraduate studies.

Undergraduate Curriculum

By taking courses across the Arcadia Undergraduate Curriculum(AUC), students will be able to demonstrate the ability to: 


  • Communicate effectively
  • Engage with and respond to multiple perspectives of a changing world
  • Apply disciplinary knowledge in multiple contexts
  • Apply critical thinking and problem solving skills in a variety of contexts


You will develop intellectual practices—another way of saying ‘ways of thinking and doing.' These practices and skills cut across majors and minors, informing how you see the world and how you interact with it.

Intellectual Practices

Integrative learning experiences are about joining the different aspects of your education, bringing together multiple disciplines as well as academic and experiential learning.

Integrative Learning Experiences

Many of our graduates say their well-rounded education expanded how they think and what they enjoy in life. That’s how a liberal arts education works, by learning multiple ways of viewing the world and finding your role in it.
