Goucher College

Goucher College is a selective, private, coed, liberal arts college dedicated to providing a multidisciplinary, international education and to preparing students for the jobs of the future. A highlight of Goucher's unique liberal arts curriculum is the requirement that all undergraduates must study abroad at least once before graduation, making the college the first in the nation to make such a bold move in globalized education. Goucher's academic philosophy is focused on 3Rs: relationships, resilience, and reflection, and coursework reflects the core values of a liberal arts education: proficiency in English composition and in a foreign language, solid foundations in history, abstract reasoning, scientific discovery and experimentation, problem-solving, social structures, and environmental sustainability.

In addition to a comprehensive undergraduate liberal arts education and excellent graduate programs, Goucher also offers more than 60 student-run clubs, well-established opportunities for community service and leadership, and a wide-ranging internship program. Students also compete in 20 NCAA Division III sports (basketball, volleyball, tennis, soccer, track and field, cross-country, swimming, field hockey, and lacrosse), national equestrian events, and intramural sports. Located inside the beltway of Baltimore, Maryland, there are many off-campus opportunities, including access to educational, culture and entertainment events nearby.

Goucher strives to educate the whole student and promotes a broad education over narrow career training. This gives graduates a wide range of professional options and increased ability to take advantage of new opportunities in developing fields-and even the capability to change careers. Goucher students master a range of knowledge, including the communication, critical thinking, and quantitative reasoning skills that U.S. employers overwhelmingly say they want job candidates to have.
