Arcadia's challenging London Internship program combines real-world experience with courses which facilitate students' understanding of the global workplace. Whether you want to gain financial experience in a commodities brokerage; work in an auction house or at an advertising agency; explore non-profit management; or assist a British MP in the houses of Parliament, our internships consist of much more than mere observation or filing paperwork. In addition to your 3-day-a-week internship placement you will also write a substantial paper or complete an independent project.
While our internship program is not for the timid and will require good time management skills, the chance to work and study in London provides one of the best study abroad experiences available. You'll take part in British life and culture in ways that few students are able to, while also gaining valuable working experience. And you can earn a full semester's worth of credit.
The Padua Italian and European Studies Program offers a semester of study in the historic and lively university town of Padua (Padova) Italy, located 20 miles west of Venice. Designed for students with no previous background in Italian, the program combines a beginning Italian language course with elective coursework in English in a variety of fields. All courses are taught by local faculty either at the BU Padua Academic Center or at the University of Padua. Excursions within Padua and to neighboring sites complement the curriculum for a truly immersive experience in this historically and artistically rich Italian region. Upon successful completion of a semester, students earn 16 Boston University credits.
