Program Locations

LIU Global students enrolled in the B.A. in Global Studies program spend the first three years living and learning at the College's overseas centers and program sites in Central America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. In each center or program, students gain an in-depth understanding of the world and its challenges. During their senior year, students undertake two internships and engage in independent research into a global issue that is the basis of their senior thesis.

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