Welcome to Global College!

The world is your classroom on this journey of learning and discovery. Over the course of eight semesters, you’ll live and learn in eight or more countries and participate in a transformative educational experience that combines rigorous academics, language and cultural immersion, career development, individualized learning, and countless adventures.

Unlike a study-abroad program, LIU's Global College program is a unique four-year Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies track which combines a rigorous program of structured classroom instruction with full-time immersion into foreign countries and cultures; field research; direct hands-on engagement with the concepts studied in the courses, such as site visits, field research, and meetings with government and non-governmental representatives and other persons; and international and domestic internships. The curriculum gives you the freedom to explore your interests and passions and equips you with the knowledge, empathy, and real-world skills you need to understand humanity's challenges. As a result, you will be empowered to become a socially responsible global leader in a richly diverse and increasingly complex world.

If you are adventurous, bold, intellectually curious, compassionate, socially conscious, and passionate about working in an international context—and are looking for a road less traveled than the typical college experience—you’ll go far.
