From the School

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.

Overall

From The School

The university looks for students who are eager to take advantage of the resources and opportunities at Johns Hopkins, and who will contribute to the campus community. The student’s academic character, intellectual curiosity, impact and initiative, and extracurricular involvement play a significant role in application review. A student’s intellectual interests and accomplishments are of primary importance, and the admissions committee considers each applicant’s scholastic record, standardized test results, essays, and recommendations from secondary school officials. In addition to the application and the Hopkins supplemental essay, other required documents include: Two teacher recommendations, secondary school report, and the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT. The university enrolls a first-year class of approximately 1,300 men and women from across the globe. In addition, transfer students from other colleges and universities are admitted to the sophomore and junior classes.

Academic Programs

The academic landscape at Hopkins is interdisciplinary by nature. Students from various backgrounds bring different perspectives to class discussions, creating a more dynamic, engaging learning environment. Collaboration is encouraged—between students and across disciplines. Virtually all programs combine different areas of study to help students think more comprehensively about issues. More than 60 percent of Hopkins students double major or minor, often creating unique combinations like electrical engineering and romance languages, mathematics and philosophy, or biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship and management.

Undergraduates in all programs within the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering gain practical experiences through research conducted both on and off campus. Several funded programs, such as the Provost’s Undergraduate Research Awards and the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship, are available to give participants the chance to complete projects of their own design. Students also encounter real-world experiences—like implementing marketing plans for local companies and heading startup businesses on campus—through the Center for Leadership Education, which houses the popular entrepreneurship and management minor. Students can pursue their creative interests through the Center for Visual Arts, which offers an array of programs and almost 40 studio courses.

Several combined programs are available for undergraduates looking to broaden their educational experience. The Peabody Double Degree Program allows qualified students to simultaneously earn a bachelor of music from The Johns Hopkins Peabody Institute and a B.A or B.S. from Johns Hopkins University. The Direct Matriculation Program: Master of International Studies (DMP) allows qualified students displaying a strong interest in international studies to pursue a combined bachelor’s/master’s degree with the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, DC.

Johns Hopkins has schools, centers, and affiliates all over the Baltimore area—and they are often linked by free shuttle bus—in Washington, D.C., across the country, and around the world. The larger Hopkins network offers opportunities for cross registration, independent projects, and internships.

Majors and Degrees Offered

Students interested in pursuing law or medicine choose any of the 52 majors and 44 minors but follow a pre-law or pre-med advising track offered through the Office of Pre-Professional Advising. The biomedical engineering (BME) program at Johns Hopkins is widely regarded as one of the best in the world.

Students Say

Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore might have a rep for STEM, but undergrads say JHU offers a diversity of strong programs, including in music and political science, in which students "[can] study anything and still be taught by the highest of experts." Students say that the academics here are "beyond compare" and rave about the interdisciplinary studies, hands-on engagement, and an "availability of resources, research, internship, and job opportunities [that] are unmatched." With 5,300 undergrads, Hopkins is "small enough for strong interactions among students" and large enough for "unparalleled opportunities to pursue research, form strong relationships with professors, and learn from an outstanding group of peers." While most students major in STEM fields, they "come from various backgrounds and have vastly different experiences," and every student here is "overwhelmingly passionate about what they do and aspires to make an impact in their field." Students have the ability to design their own curriculum, and professors "make themselves very accessible to their students for coffee chats, career advice or even just to give life advice." Though there are a few duds in the bunch (and "some TAs sometimes don't speak the best English"), most instructors are "more than willing to push class topics beyond the confines of the textbook to expose us to the implications of the topics discussed in class." Students appreciate that Hopkins posts what other students think of courses so each person "can see what classes appear ‘better' and so professors can gain feedback and improve." Classes are "rigorous but very cooperative" and teach you "how to approach any problem fearlessly." The strong alumni network helps with job placement, and the school "gives out a lot of money to undergrads with good ideas through the Wilson Fellowship." Professors are eager ("almost giddy even") to take undergraduates under their wings and show them how to do research, and these opportunities are available regardless of your major: "One of my art history major friends curated his own exhibit in a gallery downtown (with work from several world-renowned artists) as his research project," says a student.

Students Say

If you asked Hopkins undergrads to summarize their career services office in one word, it would likely be “awesome.” And that’s no surprise. After all, when the average starting salary for graduates is $58,700 (source: PayScale.com), you know the school is doing something right. The Career Center truly bends over backwards to help students prepare for the job market. Impressively, undergrads can request customized workshops on any career-related topic they deem important. They can also participate in unique programs during the university’s intersession. For example, there’s “Financial Literacy” which combines classroom lectures regarding specific areas of finance (venture capital, IPOs, etc.) with a visit to NYC and meetings at firms such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, etc. The office hosts similar for programs for students interested in PR/ media, globalization and public health. And, of course, undergrads can receive more traditional assistance such as resume critiques and mock interviews.

From The School

Homewood is an active, engaged campus where students are members of over 300 student groups and organizations. All Johns Hopkins student groups are governed and managed by students, and there is something for everybody with organizations dedicated to—theater and performing arts, politics, investments, service work, publications, student government, and even fire juggling. Athletics fuel school spirit, often found in full force at the Nest, a student seating section of Homewood Field. One out of six Johns Hopkins students participates in one of our twenty Division III teams or club athletics, and more than half participate in the popular intramural program.

The 140-acre undergraduate campus featuring grassy quads and brick buildings is surrounded by residential areas and neighborhoods that boast one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants ranging from fancy to funky, historic theaters, museums, and an arts and entertainment district. The nearby Charles Village community located just beyond the Homewood campus front gates is home to many shops, restaurants, some student housing, and the Barnes and Noble bookstore. Students can grab lunch or coffee at chains and local mom-and-pop spots and have access to banks, dry cleaners, and grocery stores.

Baltimore's resources make it an extension of the classroom and an integral part of a Hopkins education. Off campus, the city provides unique academic, cultural, and pre-professional experiences. Some classes partner with local organizations to give students practical experiences that complement classroom lectures—like engineering a "fish ladder" at Maryland's Bloede Dam or replicating ancient Greek pottery work at Baltimore Clayworks. Due to the vast network of Hopkins schools and facilities that extends throughout Baltimore (and abroad), undergraduates have the chance to take courses and participate in research at the other divisions of Johns Hopkins University, including the Peabody Conservatory, the School of Nursing, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, the School of Education, the Carey Business School, and the School of Medicine.

Hopkins students also embrace the university's long-standing commitment to Baltimore and use their skills to make an impact on the city that becomes their second home. The pre-professional, volunteer, and just-for-fun experiences Hopkins students encounter create lasting memories and offer preparation for future success in a wide variety of industries.

Students Say

This group of "ambitious workhorses" are "very intellectually curious and smart" and "want to be on the forefront of innovation." The typical Hopkins student "works really hard, and knows how to cut loose as well." Though many students are interested in the sciences, everyone at Johns Hopkins "brings something unique to the school whether it is their love for art, school spirit at sporting events or their desire to find a cure for cancer." The demographics include "a lot of international people and people from various backgrounds." There may be "a lot of introverts," but "people are very nice and helpful," and everyone is

"invested in the livelihood of the Hopkins community."

Overview

From The School


Location

Johns Hopkins is an active and supportive community, filled with students of different viewpoints, cultures, and backgrounds. The thing that brings them all together is their desire to be here and to celebrate everything this place has to offer.

There's always something going on--and freshmen are encouraged to get involved. Every week offers lectures, concerts, art and photography exhibitions, theater, movies, volunteer opportunities, and whatever else anybody has an idea to do. You'll never run out of things to try.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Collaborative learning is fundamental to the academic environment and many of the newest buildings were designed to foster collaboration across disciplines. The Brody Learning Commons (BLC) is one of the most popular places for students to gather, study, and work together. Designed with student input, the building is directly connected to the library and contains the latest learning technology to support collaborative work—like interactive projectors that allow students to write on walls and video teleconferencing capabilities. The Undergraduate Teaching Labs (UTL) is another recently constructed building, a 105,000-square-foot facility equipped with the latest lab technology that enables synergistic, cross-disciplinary partnerships and research opportunities. Malone Hall was built less than two years ago and is a hub for the computer science department, where faculty and students work on innovative projects.

The Milton S. Eisenhower Library on the Homewood campus is part of the university’s Sheridan Libraries, which comprise the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, the John Work Garrett Library, the Albert D. Hutzler Undergraduate Reading Room, and the George Peabody Library. Together, these libraries provide one of the most comprehensive learning resources in the world. Two on-campus creative centers provide resources for students in the arts: The Mattin Student Arts Center contains theaters, a dance studio, music practice rooms, film and digital labs, darkrooms, and art studios; the Brown Foundation Digital Media Center offers digital tools like high-end computers and cameras that enable digital and audio composition and editing, animation, virtual painting, 3-D modeling, and workshops for programs like Adobe After Effects. Off campus, just a short shuttle ride away, the Johns Hopkins–MICA Film Center gives students access to state-of-the-art production facilities.

The Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center, open for use by all students, houses basketball and volleyball courts, a rock-climbing wall, a weight room, and fitness training and aerobics areas, as well as access to the Athletic Center’s swimming facilities. Popular fitness classes include yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, step aerobics, spinning, West African dance, and sports conditioning.

Students Say

There's a saying about the "Hopkins 500"—that "it's the same 500 people who are social and go out to parties and bars." In reality, "it's probably closer to one thousand but it's always the same people you see out," and the library doesn't necessarily die down just because it's a weekend night; "some of the students prefer to study all the time." Though life can get stressful, "most students at Hopkins are the type that thrive under pressure." The majority of student life "revolves around clubs and organizations," and throughout the week (as well as on weekends), students will also attend "concerts, symposiums with famous guest speakers or explore what Baltimore has to offer, such as its "a great music and food scene." Nearby Mount Vernon "has fantastic culture and food," and Fells Point and Federal Hill are known for their nightlife; Orioles and Ravens games are also popular. Thanks to the city's relatively low cost of living, students "tend to go out and eat at nice restaurants without paying too much money." During lacrosse season, some people will go the games and "get really involved in the season."

Sustainability

Lauded as one of the most exceptional research universities in the nation, it’s no surprise that Johns Hopkins University has found some innovative ways to improve campus sustainability. The student group, SHIP—the Sustainable Hopkins Infrastructure Program—has helped improve building and operational efficiency in projects ranging from rain gardens to updating all campus light poles to LEDs. The Office of Sustainability hosts Green Lead, a leadership development program for freshmen, designed to expose students to the context, concepts and connections they need to be effective change agents on campus and beyond. ECO-Reps are recruited each fall to represent residence halls, and help conduct peer outreach and activities within their respective housing facilities. In fall 2013, President Daniels made JHU the 19th signatory of the Real Food Pledge: a commitment to source 20 percent of campus food locally and sustainably. Markets on campus offer a variety local, organic, fair trade, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian, and all dining facilities on Homewood campus utilize recyclable or compostable take-out materials. The university has a community-supported agriculture program on two campuses that allow students to buy fresh food from local farmers, and the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future is the birthplace of the “Meatless Monday” campaign taking shape across campuses nationwide. Johns Hopkins can also lay claim to some other notable achievements, like having the largest rooftop solar PV installation in Baltimore City and one of the largest green roofs in Maryland. The university also has a LEED silver building standard, and is home to roughly nineteen buildings throughout the institution that meet or exceed these requirements.
