Whichever way you want to go, we can help you get there
We spend a lot of time talking about the many opportunities available to Hopkins students, so how exactly do they find their way with so much flexibility and so many options?
The college experience at Hopkins is woven together with a wide support network of advisers who are there to guide students through their academic and personal growth. Academic and faculty advisers assist in selecting courses, exploring academic options, and evaluating each student’s interests. This is an ongoing conversation that happens throughout a student’s Hopkins career as they’re constantly evaluating their goals, options, and passions.
We understand that, as students grow here, their goals may change. Many students change their majors—and more than 60 percent double major or minor, taking classes across disciplines and schools. Along with a formal academic adviser, students connect with faculty mentors, research advisers, peers, and other resources to help make the most of their time here.
From freshman to senior year
The four years students spend on our campus can be as transformative personally as they are academically. Many of the offices and support services are designed to help students find community, address any needs, and engage at a deeper level with peers and mentors.
