Cross-Cultural Courses

The Susquehanna University cross-cultural requirement includes three course components: preparation, the cross-cultural experience off-campus and reflection on campus. Students accepted to a GO Short program are automatically registered in all three components: OFFP, OFFS and OFFR, all of which are required for participation. These course components are open only to students accepted to the corresponding GO Short program.

Students approved for a GO Long or GO Your Own Way program are automatically registered for the corresponding OFFP and OFFS or OFFC courses. GO Long and GO Your Own Way students must register for a cross-cultural reflection course (OFFR) in the semester following their return to campus.

International students who are issued a visa to attend Susquehanna may count their time on campus as their GO program. They must still register for a cross-cultural reflection course in order to complete the requirement.
