Centers & Programs
LIU Global students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts degree program spend the first three years living and learning at LIU Global’s overseas centers and program sites in Costa Rica, China, India, Australia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and South Africa, 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 and third year, students can choose to participate in the Comparative Religion and Culture Program (CRC), a yearlong program that brings students to Taiwan, India and Thailand; spend up to an academic year at the China Center, and spend a semester studying at our Australia Center (offered Spring term only) or our South Africa Center (Spring term only). 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.
