The graphic design program at Susquehanna is focused, close-knit, challenging, intense, and ultimately very rewarding. Our work is a fixture in regional and national student design competitions, and our best graduates ascend to art director and creative director positions with astonishing regularity. Our graduates don’t just make pretty pictures, they are sophisticated critical thinkers and problem solvers, and they have the skills required to win jobs at the best design and advertising agencies in the country. This is the ‘Real World’ of graphic design: our students tackle the same sorts of problems and projects faced every day by design professionals at the top end of the business.
Our majors have a wide variety of opportunities to connect with industry professionals and high profile alumni; opportunities for guest speakers, field trips, portfolio reviews, workshops, juried competitions, and internships abound.
The sense of camaraderie and community felt by graphic design majors at Susquehanna is rare and special. Our students spend a lot of time together. They are friends who push, criticize, encourage, lean on, and compete with one another. We highly encourage prospective students to attend an admissions event and meet with a faculty member and current students. Individual visits are great too. To schedule one, or learn more about SU, please contact the admissions office.
