Academic Excellence

What makes the academic experience at Susquehanna distinctive? Small class sizes and a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1. Close interactions with faculty who serve as academic advisors, research collaborators and lifelong mentors. Strong employment, graduate and professional school acceptance rates after graduation and a strong alumni support network.

98 percent of Susquehanna graduates are employed or pursuing advanced degrees six months after graduation.

Are you an enterprising, independent thinker? With more than 60 majors and minors available in our School of Arts and Sciences and the Sigmund Weis School of Business, you can easily combine your talents and interests with your career aspirations.

Global Learning

In our evolving global community, the only constant is change. Anticipating what your future will hold is complicated. But finding the right path to get there doesn’t have to be.

At Susquehanna, we understand the value of cultural competence. All students are required to complete an off-campus learning experience in a culture different from their own—through our award-winning and nationally recognized GO (Global Opportunities) program—and reflect upon that experience when they return. Seeing how different social and cultural forces shape the world around them creates a campus learning environment that embraces diverse perspectives and experiences.

If English is not your first language, our English Language Learning program can help you prepare for a successful college career. In addition to intensive English preparation, Susquehanna will help you make a seamless transition into university degree programs, and allow you to participate in all the cultural, recreational and social experiences the university has to offer.

Sigmund Weis School of Business

Susquehanna’s Sigmund Weis School of Business is among the top 5 percent of business programs worldwide to have earned AACSB accreditation, a marker of excellence. Other AACSB schools include Harvard Business School, The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, Peking University in Beijing, and National University of Singapore, among others.

About one-third of our accounting majors have job offers before they begin their senior year and 100 percent are employed within six months of graduation.

Alumni from renowned companies, such as Goldman Sachs, Prudential, Fidelity, JPMorgan Chase and Merck & Co., visit campus regularly to judge student presentations, speak as guest lecturers, and seek out prospective interns and employees.

3-2 Engineering

In conjunction with Columbia University, Susquehanna offers a cooperative program in engineering and applied science. Students spend three years at Susquehanna taking courses for a major in physics, mathematics or computer science, and pre-engineering foundation courses prescribed by Columbia University. Approved candidates enroll at Columbia for two years, earning both a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, physics or computer science from Susquehanna and an engineering degree from Columbia.

A Welcoming Campus Community

Nestled on the banks of the Susquehanna River, Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, is a picturesque and safe community with shops and restaurants located within walking distance of campus. Only one hour from the state capital, Harrisburg, and within three hours of New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore, students have easy access to major airports and rail stations on the East Coast.

On-campus student housing is guaranteed for all four years. The first-year and sophomore residence halls are very pleasant and spacious. Upperclassmen live in contemporary apartments and townhouses. You also have the option to be in a living and learning community with peers who share your academic interests.

Travel to and from Susquehanna is easy! We offer pick-up services for students at the Harrisburg international airport and transportation is available to major airports in New York City and Newark during the major U.S. holiday seasons or when the campus is closed for summer and winter vacation.
