an environment that fosters your growth.
In an academic environment as dynamic as our students, you’ll have the opportunity to explore what you care about and pursue it with purpose.
Learn by Doing
Put what you’re learning into practice. Through hands-on experiences—like research, internships, civic engagement, study abroad, and start-ups—you’ll expand and develop your skills while working on real-world challenges.
Make Connections Across Disciplines
The intersection of disciplines leads to new ideas because it allows you to see things in a multidimensional way. Whether it’s enrolling in a double major or collaborating with classmates from different areas of study, our students ask deeper questions for more effective answers.
Explore New Interests
Our flexible curriculum gives you time to explore before choosing a major and allows you to take courses across departments, so you can find topics that capture your curiosity with classmates who are excited to learn together.
Develop a Liberal Arts Foundation
Hopkins students benefit from learning foundational abilities, like expository writing, scientific reasoning, and quantitative analysis. You’ll build a curriculum that’s uniquely yours from courses across five academic areas: the humanities, natural sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and quantitative and mathematical sciences.
Build Relationships With Faculty
Our faculty have written groundbreaking books, invented life-saving devices, explored the reaches of the solar system, and received the Nobel Prize. They’re drawn to Hopkins for the opportunity to work with top undergraduate students in and out of the classroom. Through First-Year Seminars and one-on-one mentorship, you’ll develop meaningful connections as you refine your intellectual passions.
Dominique D., ’21
I can learn at Hopkins in ways I couldn’t possibly learn anywhere else—there’s no core curriculum, so I’m free to pursue a double major in two very disparate fields. My worldview becomes more complex and nuanced every day. I love a good intellectual challenge.
