Goucher College and Johns Hopkins Carey Business School on Wednesday announced a new dual degree program aimed at giving students at the liberal arts college more of an edge as they enter the job market.
The new 4+1 program allows students at Goucher the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree followed by a master of science degree from Hopkins in five years. It also seeks to complement eight new majors added to Goucher's curriculum earlier this year.
After completing their undergraduate work at Goucher, including two graduate courses during senior year, students enrolled in the program will transition fully to graduate level coursework at Hopkins. There, they can choose from a master's degree in business analytics and risk management, information systems, health care management, finance or marketing.
Students who pursue the new degree program will be charged a reduced tuition rate for the program at Hopkins.
The offering is the latest in a series of recent changes for the private college in Towson, including the addition of President Kent Devereaux who came onboard last summer.
"This new partnership strengthens the century-long academic alliance between our two distinguished institutions," Devereaux said in a statement. "This new 4+1 program, along with the eight new innovative undergraduate majors that Goucher recently launched, offers students a distinctive educational edge, enhanced value and the opportunity to make a strong impact after graduation."
