Thank you for inquiring about the Northeast GO Global trip to Spain and Italy. The trip does require the travelers to enroll in the 3-credit class, Italy and Spain: Culture and Language. This will be available in the spring term along with a variety of classes that will help you be more prepared including Spanish, World History, Unity and Diversity, and International business courses. As far as a payment play, there may be financial assistance available. If you wish to learn more about this there are many GO Committee members on campus you can get additional information from including Pam Saafeld, Mary Meyer, Adam Peterson and Kate Trindle. Many who have traveled abroad say it was well worth the time and money. If you have any further questions feel free to leave me another question. Good Luck going global!
