Goucher College PBPM: Profile

Current Class

There are 34 students in the Class of 2020-2021, represented by 24 different undergraduate majors, with the most popular being psychology, followed by history. Other majors include government, English, philosophy, economics, geography, and art history, among others. The average age is 25, and students have degrees from 27 different colleges. Five post-bacs have graduate degrees, in fields ranging from anthropology to engineering to Chinese literature, from institutions including Stanford, Yale, and the University of Cambridge.  

As in previous years, many of our students have worked in public service, both in the U.S. and abroad, with organizations like Teach for America, Peace Corps, and Partners in Health. A number are certified EMTs. The class continues the trend of a large percentage having had experience living and working abroad after college, with more than half spending substantial time in countries across the world.

Closer to home, we have a cardiac care nurse, the founder of a fair trade company, a healthcare consultant, a Title 1 public school teacher, an NPR producer, an NIH researcher, and a biotechnology analyst, among others.
