Message from the Dean

LIU Global Jeffrey BelnapAs the dean, I am pleased to introduce you to LIU Global, an academic unit of Long Island University and a truly unique program in international higher education. LIU Global offers the most comprehensive undergraduate global education available in the world. There is no other college like it!

Our bachelor's program in Global Studies immerses you in the cultures and languages of four continents, allowing you to study and live in up to seven different countries. After spending your first academic year in Costa Rica, you will select from centers and programs in Asia, Africa and Australia. Your undergraduate years will conclude with a senior capstone semester in New York City.

During your years with LIU Global, you will become part of an exclusive worldwide learning community. LIU's caring support network will sustain and enrich your time with the College and beyond. LIU Global students, by sharing awe-inspiring and transformative educational experiences, don't just make friends; they make friends for life.

As an LIU Global graduate, you will take with you a rewarding—and highly marketable—mastery of global issues, as well as the proven ability to live, work and thrive in multiple countries, languages and cultures.

We understand that LIU Global is not for everyone. However, if you are adventurous, bright and interested in absorbing the lifestyles of diverse cultures, we are confident that the Global Studies program will be a perfect fit. LIU Global can give you the skills and insight you will need to make a difference in the world.
