Overview

The Johns Hopkins University

As the nation's leading research institution, Johns Hopkins brings to education the same dedication it brings to other disciplines by leading the way in developing the best educational practices for the benefit of all learners. Established in 1876, the university has nine academic divisions (arts and sciences, business, education, engineering, international studies, medicine, music, nursing, and public health), and has campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area, and in Bologna, Italy and Nanjing, China.

The School of Education

Established in 2007, the Johns Hopkins University School of Education (SOE) has quickly taken its place as a national leader in education reform through research and teaching. Grounded in the Johns Hopkins tradition of research and innovation, SOE is ranked #1 among graduate schools of education by U.S. News & World Report and receives more funded research than any other graduate school of education in the United States. The school addresses some of the most challenging problems facing education today, from early childhood to the adult learner, through doctorate and graduate programs, research and development activities, external partnerships with school systems and educational entrepreneurs, and collaborative connections to the broader Johns Hopkins research community.

Three research and development centers support the school's work: the Center for Research and Reform in Education, the Center for Social Organization of Schools, and the Center for Technology in Education. Approximately 1,500 SOE students are enrolled at the university's Homewood campus in Baltimore and two off-campus centers located in the Baltimore-Washington area.

Doctoral Degrees

Doctor of Philosophy in Education (PhD): This unique interdisciplinary learning experience prepares top scholars in education research, practice, and policy who possess the analytical capabilities for identifying problems and crafting solutions beyond one academic discipline. A selected number of PhD candidates receive full tuition assistance and an annual stipend to support full-time study.

Doctor of Education (EdD): This online program prepares an exceptional corps of practicing educational leaders to meet the challenges associated with improving both the public and private education environment. Graduates of this part-time program will be prepared for a wide variety of leadership positions in preK-12 settings and the education industry. See more details for specialization tracks.

Master's Degrees

The SOE offers a variety of master's degrees in teacher preparation, teacher development and leadership, special education, counseling and human services, and interdisciplinary studies.

Certificates

Educators interested in learning a new specialty or who want to keep pace with the latest advances in a special topic of interest can choose from a wide selection of graduate certificate programs, including how brain research affects learning, online teaching, data-based decision making, and leadership in technology integration, to name a few.

Program Formats

Students can take advantage of flexible full and part-time formats. Accelerated full-time formats are available in teacher preparation, special education, and counseling and human services (school counseling). In addition, a number of online offerings are available.

New Programs for 2014-15

MS Gifted Education: designed for educators to better understand, identify, and meet the unique learning needs of advanced-level learners. Program will prepare teachers and administrators for leadership roles in field of gifted education with an emphasis on research and program development.

Unique Learning Opportunities

Unlike traditional graduate schools of education, the SOE partners with research-based colleagues across Johns Hopkins to address the challenges of PK-12 education and adult learning. This partnership creates an innovative cross-disciplinary approach to preparing students and strengthening school leadership and research. As a result, SOE students learn from an extraordinary blend of faculty members and researchers in arts and sciences, business, engineering, medicine, nursing, and public health. Students can choose from a wide variety of joint programs and learn from faculty who are bringing cutting edge ideas to school reform that are being recognized as national and international models.

In addition, SOE's curriculum and action research projects are urban focused, data-driven, and culturally responsive, providing students the skills needed to tackle complex problems in some of the most challenged schools.

Creating Programs with High Impact

Johns Hopkins researchers have successfully affected student achievement worldwide. Johns Hopkins's education programs serve more than 600,000 learners, in 47 states (including the District of Columbia and Guam), and 12 countries. This work crosses interdisciplinary boundaries and includes the SOE's three research centers--the Center for Research and Reform in Education, the Center for Social Organization of Schools, and the Center for Technology in Education-- the Center for Talented Youth; and a Bloomberg School of Public Health initiative, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.

In addition, SOE is leading a unique university and community partnership that includes a state-of-the-art K-8 school and early education center on seven acres in a community catchment area in East Baltimore. The SOE is committed to ensuring that the school serves a diverse, mixed-income community, and is recognized as one of the highest performing schools in Baltimore.

SOE students can take advantage of a variety of learning opportunities in administration, teaching, and counseling in the East Baltimore School. The project, Henderson-Hopkins, takes a holistic approach to developing the potential of each student and focuses on the behavioral, cognitive, and physical health of the child. The project also emphasizes family and community involvement supported by wrap around services. Henderson-Hopkins provides a unique interdisciplinary learning experience through other Johns Hopkins schools involved in the project, including medicine, nursing, and public health.
