Physics is an international science, so Goucher's study abroad requirement is a natural part of your education. International studies opportunities in physics and astronomy are available through semester or yearlong programs at the University of Sussex (UK), or through a three-week intensive program studying astronomy in Granada, Spain.
The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow is one of the UK's leading schools in both research and undergraduate education. Goucher students can attend any classes at the University and keep current with their required Physics and Astronomy requirements for their major. Please see the Department Chair for a list of courses and schedules at Glasgow.
This program allows students to enroll in math or physics courses at the University of Sussex, which was voted England's "Best Place to Be" in World University Rankings 2008 for its highly innovative and engaging courses, state-of-the-art resources, and prime location.
An interdisciplinary exploration of science and language, this intensive course abroad integrates classes at Goucher in astronomy and Spanish with a three-week trip to Granada, Spain, a city well-known for its outstanding astronomical observatories.
By studying abroad, Goucher students gain a global perspective that enhances their course of study. Visit the Office of International Studies website for more information.
