About Czech History and Theatre:
 
On this program you will explore the Czech Republic, where the theatrical arts have participated in historical change and shaped politics and political leaders. You’ll interact and collaborate with social and political activists in the performing arts and student protesters who toppled an oppressive government, ushering in the modern nation. On this 15-day trip, you’ll visit Terezín, a Nazi concentration camp; tour two of the largest castles in Europe; go head over heels on a trapeze or wobble on a unicycle in a nouveau cirque workshop; walk miles of cobblestone in the cosmopolitan capital of Prague, the Moravian city of Brno, and the medieval town of Ceský Krumlov.

  • Program Directors: Anna Andes, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Theatre, and Ed Slavishak, Ph.D., Associate Professor of History

Student Quotes:
 
  • I was exposed to performance art that I would never have been able to see elsewhere, that redefined my ideas of what art even is. --Zach Bonner, 2015
 
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.
