About Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences is at the heart of a leading, diverse, global coeducational university. Privately endowed, the Johns Hopkins University was founded in 1876 as the first true American university on the European model: a graduate institution with an associated preparatory college, a place where knowledge would be created and assembled, as well as taught.

Today, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences continues to lead as a core institution of the Johns Hopkins complex of schools, centers, and institutes. Its home is on the park-like Homewood campus in the residential Charles Village section of northern Baltimore City.

About Advanced Academic Programs

Drawing upon over a century of research and teaching expertise, our programs offer advanced instruction in scientific fields of current interest and innovative graduate study in the humanities and social sciences. While based on the latest scientific and scholarly knowledge, course work emphasizes the application of such knowledge to practical problems.

Classes are designed to provide individual attention and to encourage student contribution. Courses leading to master’s degrees are held in the evening and on weekends at the Homewood campus in Baltimore, in Washington, D.C., and online.
