When you hire a Goucher student as an intern or employee, you’re getting the best higher education has to offer--- an individual with detailed knowledge of a specific field plus a broad foundation that encompasses all disciplines.

Goucher is a liberal arts and sciences institution. That means our approach to education is to build deep and detailed knowledge of a specific field into a broad foundation that encompasses all disciplines. Our students are well-rounded. They’re flexible. They learn quickly, think fast, adapt, and grow. Best of all, they are eager to put their learning into action in the world.

The following provides information on how we're able to support our employers as well as further information on our students and posting opportunities.

Why Hire a Goucher Intern

Goucher has been linking liberal arts education with internships and other real-world experiences for over 75 years. Goucher’s internship program continues to provide employers with first-rate students spanning the liberal arts.

Many Goucher students complete at least one internship by the time they graduate, and some complete two or more. These internships complement the students' educational experiences by enabling them to apply the lessons they have learned in the classroom to day-to-day realities of the working world.

Internships are available for every major and during every semester – winter, spring, summer and fall. Students may earn 3 (90 hours) or 4 (120 hours) credits for each internship experience. We also have students who seek non-credit internships. The Career Development Office works hard to tailor each student’s internship experiences to his or her particular academic interest and career goals.
