Welcome to LIU Global Academics

LIU Global prepares students for a life of leadership and global engagement through a four-year degree program of study as they travel around the world. A unique college experience, LIU Global integrates a series of semester-long, in-depth engagement that culminates in a Bachelor of Arts degree in Global Studies. Living and learning in (at least!) eight countries and traveling to (as many as) six continents, students move eastward from Latin America to Europe, from Europe to Asia or Australia, and then back to North America for a final semester in New York City.

LIU Global engages in an ongoing process of program development and improvement, adjusting students’ educational itinerary in response to emerging challenges and opportunities.
