Italian Language and Culture is a 4 week program that allows you to immerse yourself in Italian culture by living with an Italian family and participating in a summer project for kids. You will get to experience the art you are studying in class by visiting local landmarks such as the medieval Estense Castle and the Renaissance frescoes of the Schifanoia Palace. And who doesn't love Italian food? You will get to make your own pizza at an inner city organic farm and watch a gelato-making observation (and then eat some of course!). There will also be time to visit other amazing Italian cities, including Florence, Ravenna, and Padua.

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:
