Successful Outcomes

Your undergraduate degree is just the beginning. What comes afterward depends on how well you were prepared to use all of your skills and abilities.

Susquehanna prepares you for lifelong success.

Graduate School

Approximately 90% of our students are accepted into graduate school, often to one of their top choices, or even to their first choice.

Within five years of graduation, more than 50% of our students will choose to go on to earn a graduate degree. But not necessarily in psychology. Many of our graduates receive master’s degrees in social work, therapy, counseling, school psychology and guidance. Others obtain advanced degrees in nursing, physical and occupational therapy, public health policy and the law.

Recent Graduate School Enrollments of psychology graduates 



The majority of our students get entry-level jobs immediately after graduation to gain more professional experience. They work in mental health settings, schools, hospitals, the criminal justice system, research laboratories or even in corporations.
