Majors and Minors

Academics Blog: Read how students choose their majors and classes and discover amazing opportunities.

Across majors and disciplines, Johns Hopkins undergraduates are active learners who pursue their interests through hands-on learning opportunities. Click on the different majors below to learn more, keeping in mind that academic flexibility is one of the hallmarks of a Hopkins education. Our students learn across academic boundaries, finding new ways to combine their passions as they build the experience that works best for them. Their time here is defined by so much more than just their majors—click to learn more about the culture of discovery and academic freedom on our campus.

You don’t have to pick just one! Over 60 percent of Hopkins students have a double major or minor. Discovering the right program—or combination—is all part of the Hopkins undergraduate experience.



The broader Hopkins network reaches beyond majors and minors. Explore the many fields of study in our schools of Engineering and Arts & Sciences.

Pre-Health and Pre-Law

Interested in a career in healthcare or law? Here, pre-health and pre-law are advising tracks, not majors, which means students of any major can pursue those paths. Our experts in the Office of Pre-Professional Advising can help you make sure you’re taking the right classes and are properly prepared for any exams or applications. The unique preparation our students get makes them largely successful in their post-graduate life, with about 80% of our med school applicants earning admission to medical school and about 94% of our law school applicants entering law school.

Additional Programs

Five-Year Master’s Programs

Johns Hopkins offers a variety of five-year combined bachelor’s/master’s degree programs for students who know they want to pursue post-graduate study and are eager to continue their education at Hopkins. Once enrolled in an undergraduate program, qualified students can choose to apply for a five-year program that will extend their studies, allowing them to graduate with both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. Students usually complete the master’s portion of the program in one year instead of two, as some undergraduate courses may count toward the master’s degree. Learn more about five-year master’s options in the School of Engineering and the School of Arts & Sciences.

Prospective students with a strong interest in international studies or global health studies may apply to either the Direct Matriculation Program: Master’s in International Studies or Direct Matriculation Program: Master’s in Global Health Studies along with their undergraduate application.
