Why Study Science & Engineering at Goucher?

Goucher College has established dual-degree programs (typically called “3+2” programs) in partnership with Columbia University in the City of New York, and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. The dual-degree program enables students to explore the liberal arts and sciences, while developing professional knowledge and experience in a specific field of engineering. Students in the program typically spend three years at Goucher, studying a liberal arts curriculum and completing major requirements for the B.A. degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics. Successful students will then complete an additional two years at the partner institution to complete a B.S. degree in engineering.

What Will You Do?

Partner universities have differing requirements for science and mathematics foundation courses to take during your time at Goucher. Consult the academic catalog for a full listing. Interested students should contact the 3+2 Engineering program coordinator, Dr. Sasha Dukan.

For purposes such as payment of tuition, student governance, financial aid, and housing, participants in the 3+2 program are considered Goucher students during their first three years, and JHU or Columbia students during the last two. Both the B.A. degree from Goucher College and the B.S. degree from JHU or Columbia are awarded at the conclusion of the fifth year, provided all requirements for each degree have been fulfilled.
