Advanced Graduate Study in Liberal Arts

Certificate Part-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Certificate Program for Advanced Graduate Study in the Liberal Arts empowers students to stoke their intellectual curiosity, passion, and diversity beyond graduation. It provides the ideal opportunity for the lifelong learner to continue to explore the world from an academic perspective—and in so doing, better understand their potential as dynamic thinkers.

Advanced Media Studies

  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The discipline of media studies has emerged from the cultural studies, critical theory, and philological disciplines dedicated to historical, cultural, and linguistic analysis of how ideas are communicated. In today’s global media market, digital and other emerging media have become so widespread that they demand their own field of specialized research.

The Center for Advanced Media Studies (CAMS) aims to fulfill this need within the Johns Hopkins community by establishing fellowships and residencies, organizing workshops, lecture series, and screenings/gallery installations, and broadly supporting the burgeoning field of advanced media studies. The center is geared toward graduate students with an interest in media studies, but is open to the larger Johns Hopkins and Baltimore communities.

Africana Studies

Major Minor Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Center for Africana Studies pursues broad inquiry into the ideas and experiences of African peoples throughout the world. Its interdisciplinary approach is organized around three major sub-fields: African studies, African-American studies, and studies of the African diaspora.

The center's work spans diverse academic disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and public health. While its sub-fields possess distinct and distinctive intellectual traditions, they offer exciting possibilities for comparative as well as integrative inquiry.

 

Anthropology

Doctoral Major Minor Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

This major combines the study of social and cultural theory with the empirical study of everyday life, social organization, cultural and political expression, and forms of imagination across human cultures past and present, including those of the students themselves.

The Department of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins is one of the few in the country that focuses exclusively on socio-cultural anthropology, one of the four traditional subfields of the discipline. The department’s faculty conduct field research in the Americas, South Asia, the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa.

Applied Economics

Master's Part-time Hybrid In-person Online
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

Economic analysis is no longer relegated to academicians and a small number of PhD-trained specialists. Instead, economics has become an increasingly ubiquitous as well as rapidly changing line of inquiry that requires people who are skilled in analyzing and interpreting economic data, and then using it to effect decisions about national and global markets and policy, involving everything from health care to fiscal policy, from foreign aid to the environment, and from financial risk to real risk.

Applied Research in Communication

Certificate Part-time Online
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Research for Communication provides a cutting-edge curriculum. Students will acquire the skills related to conducting original research and become aware of resources, such as professional associations and mentors, that help them continue their education throughout the remainders of their professional careers in research.

Archaeology

Major Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Johns Hopkins Undergraduate Program in Archaeology is an interdepartmental program that introduces students to archaeological theory, the analysis of archaeological materials, and the results of archaeological research in prehistoric and early historic periods in the Old and New Worlds.

Archaeology studies human societies through examination of their material culture (physical remains), considering such issues as human subsistence, interaction with climate and physical environment, patterns of settlement, political and economic organization, and religious activity and thought. The field allows for the study of the entirety of human experience from its beginnings to the present day, in every region of the world and across all social strata.

Students in the major will have the opportunity to study and conduct research on materials stored in the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Collection, which consists of a diverse and extensive assemblage of artifacts from ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, and Mesoamerica. Opportunities may also be available to study materials in the Classical, Egyptian, and Near Eastern collections in the Walters Art Museum, as well as to conduct fieldwork at faculty-sponsored archaeological digs in Egypt.

Art Workshops

  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

Although the university does not offer a degree program in art, the Homewood Art Workshops provide a studio environment in which undergraduates can pursue their creative interests and earn academic credit in a visual arts program. Courses in drawing and painting develop observational skills and techniques in the beginning student. Courses in cartooning, design, and photography balance studio work with research and critical analysis.

Astronomy & Astrophysics

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

Research in the Department of Physics and Astronomy primarily centers on three areas: astrophysics, condensed matter physics, and particle or high energy physics. The Center for Astrophysical Studies comprises areas within the discipline: cosmology, extragalactic astronomy, galactic astronomy, numerical simulations, large datasets, and instrumentation. The condensed matter physics group maintains active experimental and theoretical research programs at the forefront of both hard and soft condensed matter physics. The particle physics group conducts research in both theory and experiment.

Behavioral Biology

Doctoral Major Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

For those who want to study the natural and social sciences in relation to human and animal behavior, behavioral biology combines psychology, brain science, engineering, biology, and earth and planetary sciences. The program begins with the fundamental concepts of both the natural sciences and the social sciences, then explores the interface between these two areas in specialized courses and electives. About 30% of Hopkins behavioral biology majors go on to med school.
