Why Johns Hopkins?

The Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences offers visiting international students the opportunity to study for a semester or academic year at one of the major research institutions in the United States.

The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering share the Homewood Campus, located on 140 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds in Baltimore, Maryland. The two schools have a combined enrollment of 4,700 undergraduates, 1,700 graduate students, and 225 postdoctoral fellows. Nearly 10% of the undergraduate population is made up of international students representing more than 68 countries.

At Hopkins you will be able to take advantage of the breadth and depth of our undergraduate academic departments and programs. The School of Arts and Sciences offers more than 60 undergraduate majors and minors, and you have the option of concentrating your courses in a single department or exploring the interconnections between disciplines by taking courses across multiple departments.

As a visiting international student, you may register for any undergraduate course for which you meet course requirements. Research and independent study options are also available if you plan to attend Hopkins for a full academic year.
