Program Timeline

Though you will have five years to complete all the degree requirements, most students graduate in two years. Each year, you have the opportunity to participate in two nine-day residencies at Goucher where you will work intensively with faculty and peers and learn from site visits and guest speakers. Here is a sample program timeline and an average time frame for completing the program. The number of credits you take each semester will determine how long it will take to complete the program.
