About GO Cusco:

GO Cusco is a service-learning and cultural program located in the historic capital of the Incan empire high in the Peruvian Andes. In our program, we will observe how indigenous heritage and influences of Spanish colonialism are interwoven in Cusco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about life in rural communities and make an impact at a primary school. Explore fascinating archaeological sites and learn about the agricultural, architectural and medicinal practices of the Incas. Cap off the program with a visit to the stunning and secluded ruins of Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
  • Prerequisite: Student must have completed Spanish 104 or the equivalent
  • Financial Aid: Need-based aid may be available
  • Program Directors: Megan Kelly, PhD, Assistant Professor of Spanish; Helen Kiso, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology

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.
