Goucher College

Goucher College is dedicated to a liberal arts education that prepares students within a broad, humane perspective for a life of inquiry, creativity, and critical and analytical thinking.

The college's principal objectives are to help each student master significant areas of knowledge and skills while developing an appreciation for individual and cultural diversity, a sense of social responsibility and a system of personal and professional ethics.

Goucher believes these goals are best achieved in an environment that responds to students both as individuals and as members of multiple groups. Accordingly, education at Goucher is based on an expanding sense of community--a community where discourse is valued and practiced, where students attend small classes and interact closely with faculty and one another, and where students can participate in and lead extracurricular programs.

Guilford College

Guilford College

Guilford’s longstanding mission is clear and distinctive: to provide a transformative, practical and excellent liberal arts education for every student that produces critical thinkers in an inclusive, diverse environment, emphasizing the creative problem-solving skills, experience, enthusiasm and international perspectives necessary to promote positive change in the world. Our timeless core values of community, diversity, equality, excellence, integrity, justice and stewardship are rooted in Quaker testimonies of community, equality, integrity, peace, and simplicity. 

Physics students at Guilford come from a variety of backgrounds and have a broad spectrum of interests and career goals. About one-third of our physics majors plan for employment in a technical field immediately after graduation. Another third pursue graduate study in physics or astronomy. The remaining third go on to advanced study in another field. The common thread connecting the different goals and focuses of our students and faculty is the physicist’s approach to thinking about, modeling and understanding the universe.
