Starting this autumn, Arcada has two new departments. The new departments are responsible for health and welfare, and healthcare respectively. For you as a student, this will not mean any major change in your daily life as cooperation between the departments will be close. Some courses will continue to be included in the programmes and selected across the department boundaries.

The most important thing for you now is to know which department your programme belongs to. This is central as you need to know for example where to find the amanuensis who is able to help you with most study related questions. The department of health and welfare is located on floor B4 and the department of healthcare on floor A4. We have gathered info about the new departments below so that you know whom to turn to. Read more about the department of health and welfare and the department of healthcare here at Start.
