At Goucher, you can plot your own course.
Goucher College's academic program is expansive in both range and depth. A Goucher education cuts across disciplines to encompass a vast body of knowledge, and it couples that knowledge with internships, study abroad, and service-learning programs that test, shape, and reinforce the lessons learned in class.
In the classroom, Goucher students work closely with a dedicated and distinguished faculty that includes critically acclaimed writers and nationally recognized scientists, historians, and scholars. Classes are small - most include fewer than 20 students - and are marked by close personal attention from professors and abundant opportunities for research and other collaborative projects.
Most of all, Goucher offers flexibility. Students are encouraged to combine classes from different departments to create their own majors, pursue independent research projects, and plot their own course to a rewarding and fulfilling educational experience.
“Professors are there for me and push me, but they are also there to talk to me if I’m having problems, and they’ll help me improve. Their goal is to make you succeed. It’s a good place to learn how to go off on your own.”
