International Internships


Goucher provides several options to students who are interested in pursuing international internships - experiences which take place outside of the United States. Both the Offices of Global Education and Career Education are involved in the process of working with students pursuing international internships. Office of Global Education helps students understand the logistics and process of working abroad and the CEO works with students to understand the process of receiving academic credit.

  • For students pursuing an independent international internship for academic credit, an Internship Learning Agreement must be completed one month before the end of classes the semester prior to the semester in which the internship will be completed. For more information, review the Registering for An Internship Course page and follow the instructions to submit the Internship Learning Agreement (ILA).

  • As part of the Internship Learning Agreement application process, the Office of Global Education will be contacted to approve the internship location. Sites without approval will not be considered for credit. Students are strongly encouraged to have an in person meeting before submitting the Internship Learning Agreement.

  • Students pursuing an internship as part of their Goucher study abroad program or a non-Goucher study abroad program do not need to complete an Internship Learning Agreement.

Please contact Office of Global Education at 410-337-6455 or visit the Office of Global Education for more information.
