Welcome to the homepage for Long Island University’s Office of Academic Affairs. The key function of the Office is to provide academic coherence and direction for the University, as well as to ensure the quality of both the curriculum and the faculty members by whom it is taught. This site provides an overview of the academic policies, practices, timetables and guidelines that apply to our efforts.
Visitors will find the forms necessary for everything from the development of a new academic program to the hiring of new faculty members, as well as the process of tenure review. Faculty members also will have access to a wealth of current information on activities including the Teaching and Learning Initiative workshops and events, the Faculty Sabbatical Exposition, the Abraham Krasnoff Memorial Award for Lifetime Scholarly Achievement and the David Newton Awards for Excellence in Teaching. In addition, comprehensive information is provided on the development of instructional technology resources for the University, accreditation and regulatory requirements, outcomes assessment, sponsored research, and foundation relations and support.
Students can explore academic programs offered at the University and learn more about program accreditations, as well as highlighted programs and majors of interest. They also can browse select faculty profiles.
All of these areas can be accessed through the navigational buttons on this page. If you have any other questions or would like to contact someone directly, you can locate contact information for each member of the Office staff and their respective areas of responsibility on the Office of Academic Affairs Staff pages.

M.F.A. in Writing and Producing for Television
LIU Brooklyn proudly announces the new TV Writers Studio (SM), which will launch in September 2010, with a carefully selected complement of 20 to 25 graduate student writers from across the U.S.A. The students invited to participate will be part of an intensive, two-year program of study during which they will function collaboratively, much like the staff of an ongoing television series; and independently, as writers/creators of their own series pilot. Classes will be held at Steiner Studios, a 305,000-square-foot, Hollywood-style production and support facility. Students will earn an M.F.A. in Writing and Producing for Television upon completing the 48-credit program. Learn More.
