You'll immerse yourself in your major and gain broad-based knowledge across many academic areas.

All majors provide research opportunities with faculty members, outside agencies during the summer and also independent projects.        

Our Sigmund Weis School of Business is AACSB-accredited, a marker of excellence which places it among the top 5% of business programs worldwide.

Seven Fulbrights in six years!

98% of our alumni are employed or pursuing advanced degrees within six months of graduation.

94% of alumni say they would likely attend Susquehanna all over again, a true testament to the education received.

When considering the return on investment, the long-term value of a private liberal arts and sciences education is clear.

Graduation rates are much higher than the national average. Full-time faculty—not teaching assistants—work with students in small groups. They mentor students individually, challenge them and help them reach new levels of competence.  Not only do they ensure students succeed academically, they assist in securing internships and professional positions after graduation.

More graduates complete their degrees in four years, compared to five or more years at many larger institutions. That's a significant savings in tuition dollars. Plus you can enter the job market and begin earning a salary sooner.
