What's Included

Let us do the planning so you can stress less and travel more. Your program fee covers many of the expenses of your time abroad.

Weekend Travel & Adventures

During the middle three weeks of the program, you will have three-day weekends to explore Rome or adventure outside of your program city. The GO Rome staff will hold office hours throughout the program to support students and plan safe, exciting weekend excursions. You can take advantage of our expertise to plan your weekend in one of our favorite cities like Florence, Venice, Cinque Terre or the Amalfi Coast. No matter how you decide to spend your weekends, we will support you with our expert advice and ensure you find your travel squad.

Academic Courses

GO Barcelona courses are developed in the context of Spain’s rich cultural history. Classes are available in business, culture, communications and art history. Students with Spanish majors or minors can even opt-in to Spanish-language instruction and receive Spanish credit for select culture classes. Our distinguished professors are experienced in leading students in international settings and incorporate local culture into the classroom whether it is through cultural site and museum visits, readings by Spanish authors or by providing local context to the topics discussed. Smaller class sizes mean there is ample opportunity for you to engage with your professor and fellow students to fully embrace the curriculum. Classes meet Monday-Thursday most weeks which will provide you the opportunity to travel on your 3-day weekends.

Community Building & Engagement

Our engagement model is the reason the GO programs are different from other study abroad programs. Our team consists of a program director, faculty members and peer leaders who will support you and create fun and unique opportunities to connect with your program group. In past summers, we have hosted a variety of optional activities from cooking classes to perfect our favorite Italian dishes to gelato tastings. Students have told us they’ve connected with new best friends and future bridesmaids during these optional activities designed to bring the program together!


Professional Experience Option

In addition to an enriching academic experience, GO Rome students have the opportunity to enhance their professional development skills and gain valuable, real-world experience through our innovative partnership with Nexgen Careers. Instead of taking two courses on the program, you take one class and in place of your second course, you will participate in the professional development program focusing on career design and real-world consulting projects for international organizations. Combine the best of both worlds with challenging academics and resume-building professional experience on GO Rome!


While in Rome, you will stay in safe, comfortable, dorm-style housing with 24/7 security.
