Overview

Johns Hopkins students have big ideas and want to change the world. From day one, our undergrads are given the freedom to explore their interests and the support to follow their passions both inside and outside the classroom. A spirit of camaraderie among students and the university's renowned faculty drives a culture of creation and discovery.

Academic freedom

At Hopkins, students explore their interests and discover new passions all while pursuing an academic path that aligns with their academic goals. With no core curriculum, students have the flexibility needed to forge unique and interdisciplinary courses of study by breaking through traditional academic boundaries. Hopkins students also have the support and resources they need to reimage the typical research setting. In fact, more than 60 percent of Hopkins students double major or minor. Whether they're working in a lab, interning at a local Baltimore museum, performing for hundreds in concert hall, or doing international fieldwork, curiosity is a part of what makes Hopkins students successful.

Research redefined

Founded in 1876, Johns Hopkins was America's first research university. Following in this tradition, for the 35th consecutive year, Hopkins leads the nation in research spending and 70 percent of undergrads participate in research across all disciplines. And not all research occurs in a lab or library - at Hopkins, research takes place in museums, an amusement park, or even at the London Olympics. Even better, many students receive funding to support their research.

Student life

Hopkins students pursue their interests outside the classroom with the same dedication they bring to their academic goals. Every year, undergrads 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, actors Will Ferrell and Seth Meyers, and Jerry from Ben & Jerry's. 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 more than 300 student-run groups, they start their own.

Campus and surroundings

Our Homewood campus is set on 140 acres full of grassy quads and brick pathways, where a short walk or a free shuttle ride leads to museums, concert halls, shops, historic movie-theatres, 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, and becomes an extension of campus where our undergraduates live, work, do research, and put their skills to use.
