What you will accomplish

At Goucher College, we know that today’s jobs stem from a variety of majors. That’s why we developed the Goucher Career Explorer, a fun and interactive way to help you visualize the possibilities.

By providing you with a strong foundation in the liberal arts, skills in writing, research, and communication, and opportunities for community and international engagement, a Goucher education prepares you for later employment, regardless of your major. As you move through your time at Goucher, one of the most exciting parts of this education journey is figuring out how your interests, passions, and strengths align with a major and, ultimately, your career path. At Goucher College, our approach to a liberal arts education equips you with a truly integrative learning experience that will prepare you to navigate that path.

We developed this Career Explorer Tool as a fun, interactive way to check out a variety of careers and see how they match with your own interests and Goucher majors. While we couldn’t include all jobs that are out there or the many jobs that haven’t been invented yet, this will help you think creatively about where your chosen major might lead.
