At Johns Hopkins University, we believe learning never ends. For more than 25 years, Odyssey, our non-credit liberal arts program, has been the region’s lifelong learning partner. Whether it is a passion you want to pursue, an interest you wish to cultivate or a job skill you would like to master, Odyssey has a wide selection of courses, workshops and lecture series delivered by top-notch JHU faculty and community experts.
Odyssey doesn’t have grades or exams – just learning for the sake of learning in a fun, creative environment. These personal enrichment programs are open to anyone with an interest to learn. Take a look at our extensive course listings from science to art, writing to photography. It has never been easier to grow, explore and discover.
