Goucher College PBPM: Profile

Current Class

There are 33 students in the Class of 2021-2022, represented by 28 different undergraduate majors, with the most popular being psychology, followed by music, neuroscience, and economics. The average age is 25, and students have degrees from 26 different colleges. Seven post-bacs have graduate degrees, in fields ranging from epidemiology to global health policy to music, from institutions including Stanford, Yale, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  

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 and AmeriCorps. A number are certified EMTs. The class continues the trend of a large percentage having had experience living and working abroad after college, with almost half spending substantial time in countries across the world. Four were Fulbright recipients, and one is fluent in 4 languages!

Closer to home, we have a NICU nurse, a concert violist, a healthcare consultant, an officer in the US Army, a speech language pathologist, a professional lacrosse player, and a CDC researcher, among others.
