A Leader in Innovation
Goucher College was named a top-10 “most innovative liberal arts college” by U.S. News & World Report in 2016 and 2017. The college is situated on a beautiful 287-acre campus and is home to undergraduate and graduate students. Goucher College empowers students to be their own academic entrepreneurs and allows students to customize their college experiences. We embrace individuality with a “you–be–you” attitude and give students the opportunity to learn everywhere: through internships, research, and study abroad (100 percent of undergraduate students study abroad). Goucher prepares students to take on the world and be ready for careers that haven’t even been invented yet. Goucher also has a graduate school, the Welch Center for Graduate and Professional Studies, which provides the opportunity to advance students’ skills and industry knowledge as well as explore career changes and professional enrichment. The Welch Center offers a diverse range of programs, including master’s degrees, a post-baccalaureate premedical program, and professional development.

    "I love that Red Emma’s uses environmentally and ethically sound sources for their coffee. It’s a radical bookstore with some really interesting reads. I literally have lost track of time perusing their shelves."
