Welcome from your program director
We are excited to have you joining us this semester for your first residency. The limited-residency graduate experience is pretty unique, and so we want to do our best to make sure you have all the tools you need.
- Being a Graduate Student at Goucher. Success in graduate school is as much about attitude and perspective as it is about scholarship. For tips on how to succeed as a graduate student in a distance learning format, visit the Technology Orientation. You will need your Goucher credentials to login.
- Everything you need for your first Residency. You begin by meeting your program director, teachers and fellow students face-to-face in the first of three invigorating, nine-day residencies. These residencies foster friendships and a network of colleagues that will carry you through graduate school and into your professional life. This link will lead you through the process.

While the residency serves as a central focal point of your graduate experience, your off-campus time in the program will be spent online. This means that having a handle on the various technological resources available to you is crucial. We recommend you get started with the Technology Orientation as soon as you can.
