LIU Global is the only college in the world that combines full-time immersion into foreign countries and cultures with structured classroom instruction, field study, internships, and community service for a rewarding, experiential, and one-of-a-kind four-year Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies.
The curriculum integrates classroom learning with real-world experience from day one, emphasizing development of global leadership skills. Central to the program is language immersion and studying cultural, geographic, environmental, and political aspects of key regions of the world.
Key components of the curriculum include:
Nations where LIU Global students learn, live, and travel include: China, Spain, Italy, Costa Rica, Morocco, the United Kingdom, France, Thailand, Fiji, Bali, and Australia. During the fall term of the final year, students will choose the LIU Global Center location of their choice—Costa Rica, Spain, China, Thailand, Bali, Australia, and New York—and engage in a professional internship and independent study project on a local manifestation of a global issue that will form the basis for the senior thesis. In the spring semester of their final year, all students participate in a Capstone course in New York City, where they complete their senior thesis project.
