Why Choose LIU Global?
LIU Global is open to students of all faiths, races and nationalities. It seeks those with the capacity for undergraduate study who desire a broad liberal arts education but who, in addition, want to use experience as a means to discover and prepare for meaningful and satisfying vocations and professions. Admissions runs on a rolling basis, although students are urged to apply by February 1st to ensure a position and to be considered for top scholarships.
The College does not attempt to maintain a protective or isolated campus environment, so learning here is not an easy process. It involves direct confrontation with oneself, with other cultures, with constant transition, with life itself. It requires:
- Desire to experience the world deeply, to meet problems and change creatively and to take on a good deal of responsibility for one's own life and learning,
- Enthusiasm for new ideas, situations, people; awareness of self and goals; optimism and a spirit of constant seeking,
- An awareness of the world beyond the self and a desire to immerse oneself in the challenges of that world
LIU Global combines a structured and focused curriculum with the freedom of independent study. LIU Global utilizes classroom and field-based seminars, low faculty-to–student ratio community-based service learning, directed independent study project, internship and one-on-one tutorials. In addition LIU Global is highly experiential. Students interact with the local community, the environment, faculty, advisers and other LIU Global students around the world.
