THROUGH A BROAD-BASED ARTS AND SCIENCES CURRICULUM AND A GROUNDBREAKING APPROACH TO STUDY ABROAD, GOUCHER COLLEGE GIVES STUDENTS A SWEEPING VIEW OF THE WORLD.
Goucher is an independent, coeducational institution dedicated to the interdisciplinary traditions of the liberal arts and to an international perspective on education. In 2006, Goucher became the first liberal arts college in the United States to require all of its undergraduates to study abroad at least once before graduation – and to give every one of them a special voucher of $1,200 to help make it possible. Goucher believes in complementing its rigorous curriculum with abundant opportunities for hands-on experience in the world. Students can choose from an innovative menu of discipline-based three-week intensive courses abroad, along with traditional semester and academic-year offerings. Many students also complete internships and service-learning projects that further enhance their classroom learning.
The college's 1,475 undergraduate students live and learn on a beautiful 287-acre wooded campus just north of Baltimore in Towson, MD. Goucher boasts a student-faculty ratio of just 9 to 1, and professors routinely collaborate with students on major research projects – often for publication and sometimes as early as students’ first or second years. The curriculum emphasizes international and intercultural awareness throughout, and students are encouraged to explore their academic interests from a variety of perspectives beyond their major disciplines.
A Goucher College education encompasses a multitude of experiences – inside and outside the classroom – that ultimately converge into one cohesive academic program that can truly change lives. Students grow in dramatic and surprising ways here, and they graduate with a strong sense of direction and self-confidence, ready to engage the world, and to succeed, as true global citizens.
