As a student in Istanbul, you will take Arcadia's unique 4-credit core course, Istanbul: City of Contrasts and Coexistence.

You will then choose courses from Kadir Has University (most worth 3 credits) to reach your 16-19 credits for the semester.

  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
