About GO Cyprus: 

GO Cyprus is a two-week program centered in Nicosia, which also includes excursions to sites of cultural, historical and political significance in both the Turkish-Cypriot Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Greek-Cypriot Republic of Cyprus. Students may have the opportunity to work side by side with Cypriot farmers and chefs, harvesting and cooking, while developing a complex understanding of culture as they view themselves and others through two different, but equally illuminating lenses - food and politics.  Cyprus’ rich history and current stark political divide will provide students with the opportunity to investigate the relative influences that political and national differences have on the development of cultural identities, and how those identities are often reflected in the foods people eat.
 
  • Financial aid: Need-based aid may be available
  • Directors: Christina Dinges, Director of GO Programs, and Jerry Habegger, Associate Professor of Accounting
Student Quotes:
 
  • Cyprus was breath taking! I learned a lot, and coming out of my comfort zone was a little hard, but I managed to do so, and had a great time in another country, studying their culture! – Shileel Foreman, 2015 program
  • As someone who had never traveled outside of the U.S., I am forever grateful for the GO Program at SU. Cyprus opened my eyes to the unknown beauty and cultures of the world. I have truly been inspired by my experiences there - Brianna Boykin, 2014 program

About GO Short:

Through intentional programming, students make the most of their short-term study abroad on GO Short programs. You will study away with Susquehanna faculty/staff leading a small group of Susquehanna classmates, all of whom have participated in the program’s preparation (i.e. GO Prep) course in the semester prior to departure. After an intensive, active program, there is a reflection course for the program to optimize your cross-cultural learning. As these programs run during winter or summer breaks and are 2-6 weeks, they are great opportunities for students to study away without committing to a full semester.
