About GO Iceland:
Combining anthropological and geological perspectives, this program focuses on fundamental components that shape Iceland and Icelandic identities, including its dramatic landscape, its cultural history, and its place on the global stage. Walk along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at Þingvellir, climb volcanoes and alongside glaciers and waterfalls, and study how Viking history and culture are reflected in museums, sagas, and contemporary politics. You will work with SU professors and Icelandic scholars and museum directors to study and explore the unique island nation of Iceland with GO Ísland/Iceland.
Financial aid: Need-based aid may be available
Directors: John Bodinger de Uriarte, Ph. D., Associate Professor of Anthropology; Ahmed Lachhab, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Earth & Environmental Sciences
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.
