Study abroad for several weeks

Journey to an unfamiliar place—either in the U.S. or abroad—without interrupting your studies on campus. Our GO Short study abroad programs are two to six weeks long and scheduled over summer or winter breaks.

Led by Susquehanna faculty and staff, these are intensive, active-learning programs designed to make the most of your time there. These programs are founded primarily in experiential learning, which allows the small group of Susquehanna students to immerse themselves in the host culture. GO Short program types vary—students may be studying at a host institution, completing a service-learning based program,or connecting with locals through investigative projects, lectures, cooking classes, observational learning methods and more. 

Throughout the program and when you return, you'll reflect on your life-changing study abroad experience with others from your program.
