Welcome to Johns Hopkins University Academic Catalogue

“The idea of the university, as it seems to me, consists in the Societas Magistrorum et Discipulorum; an association, by authority, of Masters, who are conspicuous in ability, learning, and devotion to study, for the intellectual guidance, in many subjects, of youthful Scholars who have been prepared for the freedom of investigation by prolonged discipline in literature and science.”  
 _ Daniel Coit Gilman, Johns Hopkins University’s inaugural president The Idea of the University, 1881

I am thrilled to welcome you to the Johns Hopkins University catalogue!

Founded in 1876 as the nation’s first research university, we have continued to follow our inaugural president’s vision over the past 144 years to create a place where all students can make extraordinary discoveries, advance innovative solutions, and see their big ideas brought to life. Supported by peers and faculty who are among the most passionate, dedicated, and talented people in the world, Johns Hopkins students are motivated each day by this culture of fearless enthusiasm and pursuit of knowledge.

Current and prospective students are invited to review the detailed information about the many academic opportunities occurring across our nine academic divisions. The catalogue also serves to detail the university, school, department, and academic program policies and procedures in place as of June 2023.

We hope the catalogue provides both the information and inspiration for your academic journey here at Johns Hopkins!
