Data collected one year after graduation for Goucher College's Class of 2014 (based on 217 out of 277 graduates) show*:
Goucher's unique liberal arts curriculum promotes a broad education over narrow career training. A Goucher education gives graduates a wide range of professional options and increased ability to take advantage of new opportunities in developing fields.
While at Goucher, our students enjoy outstanding internship opportunities. Because all our students study abroad before graduating, their transformative personal experiences abroad give them an advantage when applying to graduate schools and for jobs.
Once they leave campus, our graduates have mastered a range of knowledge, including excellent communication, critical thinking, and quantitative reasoning skills—skills that American employers overwhelmingly say they want job candidates to have.
The results are clear.
* Data collected for 78% of the Class of 2014 through surveys and other sources.
** Some alumni are both employed and in graduate school.
