100% Study Abroad

At Goucher, we believe that in the 21st century, every field of study has a global context. With a diverse student population featuring students from 50 different countries and a requirement to study abroad — whether it's for three weeks, a semester, or a year — Goucher students learn not only how to relate to different cultures, but how to function effectively within them. With 70 study abroad programs in more than 30 countries, the possibilities are boundless. Our students tell us these experiences revolutionize the way they see the world, and it's the best preparation for a career in a world where global economies are inevitably linked.

Political science and peace studies major, sociology minor

When students are asked for their hometown, it usually requires a one-, maybe two-word response. For Arthur Mutijima ’18, it sparked a fascinating conversation. Arthur says, “I am a global citizen. I speak French, German, English, and Kinyarwanda. In high school I was asking myself if I could have multiple identities. Goucher seemed like a place that said, ‘Yes, you can.’ "

Biological Sciences Major

"My education here has emphasized the broader knowledge of the wider world by allowing me to learn about different cultures. While in my senior year of high school, I was looking into colleges that would provide me with a well-rounded education. Besides that, I knew I wanted a student-focused undergraduate education where I won't be forgotten in the back of a large lecture hall. Realizing that Goucher is a small liberal arts college helped me decide to come to here and receive a great education that is preparing me for graduate school."

Andrea Sosa began her college search by looking at all different kinds of institutions, all over the place. “I didn’t know exactly what kind of school I wanted,” she admits. The one thing she knew for certain was that she wanted to leave her native Mexico and earn her degree in the United States. Her high school guidance counselor insisted that she apply to Goucher because she had read The Colleges That Change Lives and thought it would be the “perfect fit” for Sosa. Sosa looked into the college and applied.

The college has a great study abroad program that encourages an international education, which is awesome. "

A Diverse Community

You don't always need to go to another country to experience a culture different than your own. Sometimes it's a simple as going to a club meeting or knocking on the door of the dorm room next door. Goucher strives to bring together a diverse community of students, staff, and professors because we believe it benefits everyone. To further those goals on campus, we've established the Center for Race, Equity, and Identity, and we seek out talented international students with our Ambassadors Scholars Program.
