Goucher College is a selective, private, coed liberal arts college dedicated to providing a multidisciplinary, international education, and it is the first college in the US to make study abroad an undergraduate degree requirement.
Goucher is a rare example of a liberal arts college located close to a major metropolitan area. It is a place where smart, diverse and internationally-minded students will naturally thrive. Goucher offers a full range of academic disciplines through its rigourous liberal arts curriculum. Nearby Baltimore City and Washington D.C. offer a full range of events and opportunities.
The college is especially well-suited to students who are looking for both a challenge and personal attention from professors, are interested in discussing and debating a broad range of important subjects, are ready to develop a global perspective and are eager to attend cultural and professional training activities outside the classroom.
Goucher offers more than 60 student-run clubs to suit just about any interest. Goucher students participate in well-established community-service programs, undertake wide-ranging internships and compete in 17 NCAA Division II sports.
