Opportunities and Internships
Scholarships in the ArtsTo recognize, promote, and attract students with creative talent in dance, music, theatre, and visual art, Goucher offers two types of arts scholarships, awarded independent of financial need:
- The Fine and Performing Arts Scholarship (FPAS)
- The Rosenberg Scholarships in Music, Dance, and Visual Art and the Wilhelm Scholarship in Theatre
To be considered for these scholarships, students are required to submit a complete Scholarship in the Arts application in the area for which they wish to be considered. Detailed information is available in the Admissions Office.
Internships are a very important facet of the curriculum at Goucher College. As such, the faculty consider well-structured internships to be essential to a student's education. Students find internship opportunities through the Career Development Office, through faculty and staff members, or on their own.
A detailed description of the off-campus experience is published by the Career Development Office each year and fully describes the guidelines and timetable for internships. Students interested in arranging an internship should contact their individual academic advisers.

Instructor: Michael Curry
Community-Based LearningCommunity-based learning, or service learning, is a way for students to actively connect their academic work with direct experience in the community. By combining hands-on work in the community with the academic framework provided by course work across the curriculum, students gain a rich experience of social issues. Students learn about the workings of community, encounter differences related to race, class and privilege, gain a deeper understanding about social justice, and are able to do work that is beneficial to others. They also gain a greater understanding of themselves. Community-based learning emphasizes academic rigor, reflection, and developing ongoing community partnerships. Community-based learning can be part of any discipline and any academic division: humanities, social sciences, sciences and the arts.
At Goucher, community-based learning is part of a growing number of academic courses, including Theatre for Social Change. More information is available from Michael Curry
