Offered Winter 18/19
Because of its rich legacy of immigration, and its positive impact on the culture, Argentina is a mosaic much like the United States. This program will introduce students to the unique historical, political, cultural, biological, and environmental realities that characterize Argentina today. PataGOnia provides an excellent set of opportunities to recognize and “unpack” ethnocentric assumptions. Latin America, and U.S. involvement in Latin American history and politics will be a focus of the preparation discussion. However, students will also do fieldwork and take part in a service project during their travel. This experience will provide lenses through which students can re-examine their values and roles as citizens of the USA and the world.

About GO Short Programs:
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.
