Spending two weeks in a school that’s radically different from any other school I’ve been in was an incredibly informative experience that will affect my pedagogy for the entirety of my (teaching) career. - Robbie Long, 2017 participant

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.
Dates / Deadlines:
