Choose a Curricular Concentration program track, or undertake the General Studies Program, selecting three to four electives from a wide array of disciplines. All students are required to enroll in one Italian language course.
Because there are so many ways to create a semester at ISI, we encourage you to work closely with your program advisor during the pre-departure period to determine a curricular focus that meets your goals and objectives.
Architecture & Interior Design – design studies and architectural electives and Italian language. This concentration has a set curriculum.
Arcadia Internship Cornerstone Course – You must enroll in the Internship Cornerstone Course if you select an Arcadia Internship placement.

Refer to the ISI website for course choices and availability. Most courses use a textbook or a “reader,” a packet of information compiled by the professor. Books and readers will be available for purchase at the ISI or at local copy shops and bookstores. You will receive more information regarding locations and costs on arrival.
Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The online course form you submit to Arcadia prior to acceptance is not set in stone.
Your course may require academic excursions and other activities that have additional fees associated which are not included in your program fee. Please be sure to consult the ISI course pages to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.
