Our Academic Philosophy

Experience the joy of discovery

Bring your genuine curiosity about the world. Bring your thoughts on how things work and how to improve them. Bring your questions, your drive to find answers, your excitement to work alongside others who have the same goal—and your eagerness to hear some different perspectives. At Hopkins, you can transform all of those qualities into the ability to analyze, think more deeply, and find connections between topics. And you’ll find the people, resources, and facilities to make the most of what you’re bringing to the table.

Johns Hopkins has more research funding than any other university in the nation.

The resources at Hopkins allow our students and faculty to follow their interests beyond papers and projects to make meaningful contributions across disciplines. From labs to libraries to study abroad, groundbreaking research happens everywhere at Hopkins, and can start as early as freshman year.

“The professors are experts in their fields, and are truly passionate about their subject matter…There is an air of devotion and purpose in the classroom, which, when combined with (in my opinion) truly fascinating subject matter, creates a one-of-a-kind experience.”
