Your Passport to Learning Overseas

There's a good reason Goucher's study abroad program is ranked No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and others.

At Goucher College, we believe that, no matter who you are or what you want to do in life, the global community of the 21st century demands that you have an international perspective.

So, it won’t surprise you that, in the fall of 2006, we became the first liberal arts college in the nation to require all of our undergraduates to study abroad at least once before graduation.

Why study abroad? Simply put, it’s your chance to make a valuable connection between the classroom and real-world experience. Along the way, you get to explore different ways of thinking, communicating, working, learning, and living.

We have more than 60 programs in 32 countries, giving you the opportunity to go to college in Australia, practice peace building while at school in Africa, intern in London, or enhance second language skills over a summer in Argentina, China, France, Germany or Jordan. The possibilities are endless.

Take a look around these pages to find out more about why we’re the best study abroad school for you. Visit the world section of our virtual tour, and take a look at videos of Goucher students telling about their study abroad experiences. We also have a list of frequently asked questions and a full menu of current study abroad programs.

When you're ready to start thinking about going global yourself, it's easy to contact us.

How does Goucher get to be the top study abroad school?
Let’s face it, if we’re going to require that all undergraduates study abroad during their college career, then we better know what we’re doing. The Goucher staff and faculty make sure students and parents know what to expect, from the moment they start planning and preparing to go. After actually studying abroad, students can then learn about other international opportunities.
