About Liberal Studies

Global Liberal Studies (GLS) is an innovative bachelor's degree that features core course work in the liberal arts with a focus on great works in a global context. All GLS students spend their junior year abroad at an NYU site. Graduates of GLS will be world citizens, proficient in at least one foreign language, engaged in international cultures, and well prepared to enter the world of work or for admission to professional and graduate schools.

The Core Program is a two-year foundation program for students who will complete their education in one of the university's other undergraduate schools. It features an interdisciplinary core curriculum that fulfills the liberal arts requirements for bachelor's degrees in NYU's other schools.
