About Goucher College

Alternative liberal arts academics and lively arts programs are two things that set Goucher College apart.

A small, independent college situated on beautiful wooded acreage in Towson, Maryland, Goucher College grants bachelor's and graduate degrees in the liberal and fine arts and sciences. Art History, Creative Writing, Latin American Studies, Peace Studies, Philosophy and Religion, Theatre and World Literatures in Translation are some examples of Goucher’s majors.

Professional programs of study may also be found. Among them are Arts Administration, Education, Pre-Law, Pre-Medicine and Science and Engineering.

What differentiates Goucher, however, is its approach to all of these and other subjects. At Goucher students may carve out their own major, combining two or more fields of study. In addition, Goucher students enrolled in traditional majors are also required to do some amount of independent, interdisciplinary study.

All students must also undertake an internship or study abroad program.

Another of Goucher’s alternative options, called Goucher II, is an accelerated program which, through evening classes, gives working adults the chance to earn their bachelor’s in a shortened amount of time.


Arts-based student life activities abound at Goucher, where performing arts productions and creative arts clubs and organizations all provide students a chance to explore creative talents and interests. Students may also join religious, political and cultural clubs and participate in recreational activities.

In keeping with its alternative approach to education, Goucher does not require SAT or ACT scores for admissions.

Part-time students in the Goucher II program automatically receive a scholarship covering partial tuition. Additional financial aid sources such as loans and grants may be applied for by all Goucher students.

Goucher is a really good option for some people, not everyone. I know a bunch of kids who transferred to other schools after realizing that it's not the most challenging school you can attend.
