Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

Some of the most popular majors are those in the sciences, such as Biology and Chemistry and Arcadia is well-suited to cater to these programs. We have an excellent (and free!) tutoring center where students can make appointments with peer tutors who are knowlegable about the courses and are willing to devote as much time as is needed to assist students. Art has a large following as does majors related to social sciences and the humanities. The class sizes are small so students can easily get to know their professors, all of whom are highly qualified and willing to assist you. There are not many large lectures and that comes in handy for good class discussions.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

Very strong International Studies/Political Science/History program. Workload can seem daunting at times, but I think that can happen at most schools. Normal class size is between 10-15 students, most professors are very accessible. PT program consistently ranked as one of the best in the country, PA program also quite good.
