Humanities Overnight Program

Hopkins' overnight programs are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified when we re-open this program.

Join us for the Humanities Overnight Program, a two-day event tailored specifically for high school juniors with a demonstrated interest in the humanities. During the event, students will have the opportunity to sit in on classes, have individual time to meet with current professors and experts in their fields, get a behind-the-scenes tour of humanities facilities, and attend a college essay writing workshop led by our Admissions Office and faculty from one of our humanities departments.

Participants will stay overnight in on-campus housing. Meals, lodging, and transportation to and from campus will be paid for by the university.
