LIU Global students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts degree program spend the first three years living and learning at the College's overseas centers and program sites in Costa Rica, China, India, Australia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ecuador and Peru, engaging with a variety of cultures and people through coursework, fieldwork, service learning projects, internships, independent studies and immersion.
Studies begin with a foundation year at the Costa Rica Center in Heredia City, Costa Rica. In the second year, students can choose to study at the India Center or can participate in the Comparative Religion and Culture Program (CRC), a yearlong program that brings students to Taiwan, India, Thailand and Turkey. As juniors, students can spend an academic year at the China Center or traveling with CRC. In addition, they also have the option to spend the fall traveling through South America and/or the spring semester in Australia. The final year of the program begins with an independently designed research project in a location of the student's choice and culminates in a semester in New York City where students complete a series of capstone experiences and a senior thesis.
