Internship Accelerator

Goucher’s Internship Accelerator is a four-year sequence of real-world workplace experiences that will help you clarify where you’re headed after graduation and cultivate the knowledge, skills, and networks you’ll need to get there. Drawing on Goucher’s extensive partner relationships in the Greater Baltimore region and beyond, our experiential approach to career education will help to ensure that, regardless of your major, your time at Goucher serves as the launch pad for a rewarding and fulfilling professional life.

Employer Field Trips

Internship Accelerator 2nd Year


Gain first-hand insights into a specific field by completing a project-based internship with guidance and mentoring from a Goucher alumna/us. Our micro-internships are offered virtually during winter term, and they are designed exclusively for Goucher students by college alumnae and alumni. The majority of students completing micro-internships receive a stipend.


Internship Accelerator 3rd Year


Leverage the knowledge and experience you’ve gained through your Goucher coursework and through previous phases of the Accelerator to secure an internship in a field of interest to you. Internships are eligible for academic credit and for funding through the Goucher Internship Fellowship, and the Career Education Office provides extensive resources as well as one-on-one support to help you find the right internship opportunity for you.


Internship Accelerator 4th Year

Job/Graduate School Coaching

Clarify the skills that you’ve acquired during your time at Goucher and amplify them on your resume. Develop your job search or graduate school application strategy. Prepare for interviews. Staff from the Career Education Office will guide you through these steps through visits to your major program’s capstone course or seminar and through one-on-one and group advising sessions. Many students will also complete a second internship during their fourth year.
