Employer Field Trips

See inside the offices of local employers in a range of fields and learn about a day in the working life of employees in a variety of positions. Employer Field Trips help students clarify what they are looking for in a position, a working environment, and a field. Choose between a short, intensive winter term program or a 4-credit course within the Goucher Commons curriculum.

Employer Field Trips are part of the Internship Accelerator, a program to offer every Goucher student transformative learning experiences by providing a structured, scaffolded approach to internships.  Employer Field Trips are an introductory professional experience and first years are especially encouraged to participate. 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 launchpad for a rewarding and fulfilling professional life.
