Johns Hopkins University
Learning through research and practical experiences
At Johns Hopkins University—America’s first research institution—learning is multidimensional. The undergraduate experience is all about exploration and discovery. It’s a place where ambitious, talented, and creative students thrive. With the freedom to pursue their interdisciplinary interests, the opportunity to learn from academic leaders, and the chance to make an impact right away, our students work across academic disciplines and with every subject imaginable. At Hopkins, you’ll have the opportunity to make your own discoveries and the guidance you need to get there—in groups and through faculty mentorships, internships, study abroad, and the cultural connections of one of the most exciting cities around.
Small classes, big resources
Students are able (and encouraged) to build the academic path that is right for them, with guidance from staff and administrators to help them find their way. Several programs, such as the Provost’s Undergraduate Research Award and the Bloomberg Distinguished Professors Summer Program, are available to give participants funding to pursue research projects. With the Center for Leadership Education and Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures, students have access to mentors, internships, and even seed funding for start-up businesses on campus. Students also take advantage of study abroad programs and advanced graduate study that reflect the same spirit of academic freedom. The vast Johns Hopkins network includes schools, centers, and affiliates throughout Baltimore—most are linked by a free shuttle bus—as well as in the DC area, across the country, and throughout the world, including campuses in Bologna, Italy, and Nanjing, China.
The Homewood campus, Baltimore, and beyond
Hopkins students are active and engaged, which makes the Homewood campus an energized place to live and learn.
From performing arts groups to political groups, there are more than 400 student-run organizations. In addition to 22 varsity athletic teams, one in six Hopkins students participates in a Division III or club sport, and more than half participate in the popular intramural program. Off campus, you’ll find endless arts and entertainment options in Baltimore’s unique neighborhoods. As an entrepreneurial hub, the city offers internship and career opportunities at both top companies and local start-ups.
