Founded in 1858, Susquehanna University (Selinsgrove, PA) is a national liberal arts college that prepares students for achievement, leadership and service in a diverse, interconnected world. Academic excellence, study-away and service learning, student-faculty collaboration and rich opportunities for creative and personal growth are hallmarks of a Susquehanna University education.
Susquehanna is small enough to be academically flexible yet large enough to offer a wide variety of choices — more than 50 majors, 45 minors, 850 courses, a challenging honors program and one of the Northeast's most comprehensive music programs. Students can participate in more than 100 student organizations as well as 23 intercollegiate sports. Susquehanna's 2,100 students come from 36 states and 13 countries; more than 90 percent find jobs or pursue graduate study within six months of graduation.
Founded as Lutheran college, Susquehanna welcomes individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs, expressing its heritage through the free and open exploration of ideas, commitment to service and development of individual talents. The university is located in central Pennsylvania, along the banks of the scenic Susquehanna River and about three hours from major East Coast cultural, financial and recreational centers.
Our students thrive, and you will too, as you are mentored by professors who are both experts in their fields and exceptional teachers. Coursework at Susquehanna is intense – you will enjoy personalized attention from your faculty as they help you learn and develop the skills you need to be job and/or graduate school ready. Many schools talk about study abroad but at Susquehanna, everyone does it. We are nationally recognized for our commitment to global experiences and cultural competence through our innovative Global Opportunities (GO) program.
We educate students for productive, creative and reflective lives of achievement, leadership and service in a diverse, dynamic and interdependent world.
