Academic Information

Chapman University maintains a record of the courses that previous study abroad students have taken, and the equivalent Chapman credit that was granted for each course. To view the course equivalencies for this program, click “Sample Pre-Approved Courses” at the top of each program brochure page. Please note that Sample Pre-Approved Courses are courses that have been previously requested by a Chapman student for credit. It is not a comprehensive list of all courses available at the institution. You may view the entire course catalog for this program on the Arcadia University website. Students are encouraged to request additional or revised equivalencies during the pre-departure process, which will be evaluated by the appropriate academic units on campus.

GPA Requirement
Student must have a 3.0 cumulative and Chapman GPA in order to be eligible for this program.

Selection of Courses:
Class registration and approvals operate differently than Chapman in the British educational system.  All students, including local and visiting, are expected to have at least some background knowledge of topics they select to take at City unless it is an intro course. Therefore when choosing your classes, if the City course is designated at the 300 level, you will need to have a strong background in the subject. Otherwise you should stick to the 100 or 200 level courses. Make sure you search for courses that are available in the term you are going abroad, not the other term or academic year-long courses (unless you are going for the academic year).

Course Specific Information:
There are limited spaces for Journalism and Broadcast Journalism majors or minors wishing to take Journalism courses. Reply to this email if you want to take journalism to find out about the additional requirements. Year 1 Business courses are available to any student, however Year 2 and 3 courses are typically restricted to students who have met the pre-requisites. Students wishing to take modules under Sociology, including Media and Communications courses, must have taken at least the equivalent of Introduction to Sociology to be considered. Some Law courses are open to students who can demonstrate a background in politics, history, or international relations.

All students are expected to have some background knowledge in modules selected that are a second or third year level. Therefore, when choosing your courses, if the City course is designated at the 300 level, you will need to have a strong background in the subject.
