About

The Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences is the core institution of Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus. Comprising 22 departments and 33 centers, programs, and institutes, the Krieger School is home to students interested in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.

Our mission is discovery—the creation of new knowledge through research and scholarship, and the education of our students, undergraduate and graduate alike.

Founded in 1876, Johns Hopkins was established as the nation’s first research university. Today, each of the Krieger School’s faculty members is expected to spend as much time on research as on teaching. As a result, inquiry and the creation of new knowledge are the engine and fuel that drive teaching and learning in the school.
