Goucher strives to educate the whole student and promotes a broad education over narrow career training. This gives graduates a wide range of professional options and increased ability to take advantage of new opportunities in developing fields-and even the capability to change careers. Goucher students master a range of knowledge, including the communication, critical thinking, and quantitative reasoning skills that U.S. employers overwhelmingly say they want job candidates to have.
Goucher College is dedicated to a liberal arts education that prepares students within a broad, humane perspective for a life of inquiry, creativity, and critical and analytical thinking.
Goucher College, a private liberal arts college in Baltimore, Maryland, empowers you to be your own academic entrepreneur. A highlight of Goucher's unique liberal arts curriculum is that all undergraduates must study abroad at least once before graduation, making the college the first in the nation to make such a bold move in globalized education. Goucher's academic philosophy is focused on 3Rs: relationships, resilience, and reflection and we are proud to be one of 40 "Colleges That Change Lives."
Our tight-knit, residential campus embraces individuality with a "you-be-you" attitude. Whether you want to join a club, a music ensemble or be a part of one of the 21 different athletic teams (Go Gophers!), there truly is something for you. Plus, you'll learn everywhere, through internships, research, and studying abroad. By the end of your Goucher experience, you'll be prepared to take on the world and ready for careers (that haven't even been invented yet).
There are two ways to apply to Goucher College either via the Common Application or the Goucher Video Application. While we accept the Common Application, we created the Goucher Video App to provide another opportunity for students to show us what makes them unique, why they would flourish at Goucher, and how they will fit into our community of learners.
