Goucher implements a new curriculum in 2017-18: The Goucher Commons.
Fundamentally the Goucher Commons is a new approach to how the college will teach differently and deliver skills for better lives and better jobs. It is designed to integrate learning in the classroom with campus life, as well as life off campus--abroad, in community service, and/or, through internships. Goucher's new interdisciplinary centers will be developing the required four seminars that are part of the core requirements. The faculty in those centers are excited about collaborating to create these experiences for their students. Writing, data analytics, and foreign language will be foundational, with writing and data analytics being integrated into the major. Study abroad, racial/cultural competency, and environmental sustainability will be values throughout the curriculum, and there will be a required capstone experience.
