Whether your sights are set on Europe, Asia, South America, or another region of the world, Liberal Studies gives you several extraordinary opportunities to study away from New York for a semester or even a year. Our global study programs emphasize your location, engaging you with the historical and cultural sites that surround you and complementing the global great works core curriculum of LS. The coursework you complete during your semester or year away meet LS curriculum requirements and is designed to map seamlessly onto your academic program.
NYU Global Community
You will have access to the LS community and NYU resources at the global academic center that is your home away from Washington Square. At the same time, living and learning in a new city challenges you to become immersed culturally, grow intellectually, and develop personally. LS encourages you to add this global dimension to your education and to your undergraduate experience.
Study Away Options
LS students have unparalleled options for global study during first year and sophomore year. Global Liberal Studies majors are required to spend the full junior year living and learning in a city abroad. In addition to the study away programs offered by LS, you have access to NYU's global network through NYU summer abroad programs and NYU January Term international programs.
