Arcadia University in Chile

The Arcadia University Preview of Study Abroad Program subsidizes the cost for all first year students to have an international education experience.  Arcadia is one of the few universities in the United States that promotes study abroad as an integral part of the academic curriculum.  Students take a course that focuses on an academic topic related to a country or geographic area, and the course includes a week long field study experience in the country that is studied in the course.  In this photo from 2014, students studied about the 2006 and 2011 student movements in Chile, and the resulting political and educational changes, and visited the country to dialogue with students and teachers, view important landmarks, and engage with the culture that they had learned about.  Taught by Stephen Tippett and Carly Gellman, this course is the only Arcadia University Preview that travels to South America.  Stephen is conducting his doctoral dissertation  on the Preview Program at Arcadia University, which focuses on the instructional design of short-term study abroad.
