If you want to change the world, start with a school that opens the world to you.
Policymakers are changemakers. They support public structures everywhere, and we wouldn’t have government and laws without them. Learning public policy, at one of the first liberal arts colleges to offer the major, provides you an exceptional opportunity to make a difference working in policy analysis or public administration, at home or on the world stage.
Susquehanna’s faculty commit to their students’ success in three separate tracks: domestic, international and public administration. You will complete a significant research project directed by a faculty member, write policy briefs and analyses and complete an internship. You will be near the state capital and a few hours away from the nation’s capital, offering plenty of opportunities for real-world experience.
Our graduates contribute to major public policymaking here and abroad. They work in all levels of government, NGOs, law, think tanks, healthcare and other sectors that serve the public interest.
