As America’s first research institution, Johns Hopkins University emphasizes the importance of exploration and discovery in the undergraduate experience.
Johns Hopkins is a place where ambitious, talented, and creative students thrive. Learning occurs through hands-on experiences across all academic disciplines and within every subject imaginable. Academic freedom allows students to create their own unique interdisciplinary schedules. They choose classes they are genuinely interested in, not just required to take, so there’s a real sense of curiosity around learning that extends beyond the classroom setting.
Students can make an impact as soon as they arrive on campus. They get to know their professors and classmates the way they would at a small liberal arts college but have all of the opportunities of a major research institution with a global reach. With the nation’s most research funding for 36 consecutive years, Johns Hopkins is well known for ground-breaking advances in everything from technology to history. As a part of this community, undergraduates run with projects of their own design and work alongside experts who share their passions.
The Homewood campus brings together students with diverse passions. Diversity of thought, culture, and interests cultivates a dynamic, open-minded environment. With over 300 student-run organizations, students find leadership opportunities and the chance to get involved on campus and beyond.
The admissions committee approaches applications from a holistic perspective, evaluating the ‘whole student.’ In addition to looking at a student’s academic achievement and intellectual curiosity, we seek students who are excited about learning and living at Johns Hopkins. We look for students who will contribute to the campus community while taking advantage of all Johns Hopkins has to offer.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
