Susquehanna University is in a central Pennsylvania river valley, but it's also in a game preserve in the Gambia, West Africa, and among Incan ruins in the Andes Mountains. Susquehanna’s Global Opportunities (GO) program, the only one of its kind in the nation, requires every student to complete and reflect on an immersion experience in a culture different from one's own, either in the United States or abroad.
See yourself in a whole new light. Discover new strengths. GO can change lives, including your own.
How to GO
GO is very flexible. Your GO experience could be
• a traditional semester abroad (GO Long);
• a short-term, faculty-led program (GO Short);
• a self-designed experience (GO Your Own Way);
• an internship;
• or service in a cross-cultural setting.
Whatever form you choose, you’ll share reflections on what you’ve learned after you return to campus.
Susquehanna offers a vast array of choices: more than 90 semester-long options on six continents, including several programs exclusive to SU students. You may study in English or in a foreign language. All GO Long students take a cross-cultural reflection course on campus after their program.
GO Short programs are designed by Susquehanna faculty. Each of the more than 20 GO Short programs last at least two weeks, during semester breaks or summer. Some focus on a specific major or interest; others are built around a service project. Students complete the reflection component of the program the semester following their return.
GO Your Own Way
Susquehanna offers an ever-expanding array of GO options, but the world—and your interests—are vast. If your curiosity wants to take a different route, you can design your own GO experience. With your faculty adviser's approval, you are ready to GO on an adventure of your own making.
