Overview

People who are drawn to Johns Hopkins have big ideas and want to change the world. From day one, Johns Hopkins students are given the freedom to explore their interests in an environment that supports their dreams. A spirit of camaraderie among students and the university's renowned faculty drives a culture of creation and discovery.

Academic freedom

At JHU, there is no core curriculum, so students can fulfill general distribution credits however it makes sense for them and their academic goals. Many students forge individual and interdisciplinary courses of study by breaking through traditional academic boundaries and reimagining the typical research setting. In fact, more than 60 percent of JHU students double major. Whether they're working in a lab, studying in the library, performing for hundreds in concert hall, or doing international fieldwork, curiosity is a part of what makes JHU students successful.

Research redefined

Founded in 1876, JHU was America's first research university, which means JHU has been a trendsetter from the very beginning. The university's researchers invented saccharine, surgical gloves, CPR, and the supersonic ramjet engine, to name just a few Johns Hopkins breakthroughs. Today, the university is looking to change the way undergraduates think about research. Maybe a student see himself in London, Venice, Florence, and Paris on a grand tour of the cities that inspired some of the western world's greatest literary minds. Another student may see herself in a lab wearing a white coat, analyzing a beaker full of microphages collected from a nearby stream. Johns Hopkins satisfies both sets expectations and, because of that, 70 percent of Johns Hopkins students engage in some form of research. Even better, many of those students receive funding to support their research.

Whether a student here is interested in studying engineering, the natural or social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, or all of the above, every Johns Hopkins student, regardless of his or her major, is an investigator. This is research redefined.

Student life

JHU students embrace an entrepreneurial spirit and pursue their interests outside the classroom with the same dedication they bring to their academic goals. Every year, JHU students run Spring Fair, the nation's largest student-run college festival. They plan lecture series that bring in speakers like the writers from The Onion and Ret. Gen. Stanely McChrystal. They root for the university's nationally ranked lacrosse teams. They're committed to service with more than 60 student groups focused on community outreach. And if they can't find a club they want to join among the nearly 400 student-run groups, they start their own.

Campus and surroundings

JHU's Homewood campus is set on 140 park-like acres, where a short walk or a free shuttle ride lead to museums, concert halls, libraries, shops, restaurants, and professional sports stadiums.

A busy urban location with a small-town feel, Baltimore gives students the option to frequent a popular weekend farmers market or take advantage of nearby bike trails. And just a little farther out, students will find mountains and beaches for a fun weekend getaway. The university's location in the mid-Atlantic corridor also puts Baltimore within easy reach of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. It's the best of both worlds: a traditional campus setting with big-city opportunities.
