Anatomy

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

The F.A.E. Graduate Program provides individualized attention for each student. All students are required to engage in independent research, and a laboratory research rotation under faculty guidance begins soon after their arrival. Research may involve our large collection of fossil vertebrates, our broad array of casts of recent and fossil mammal dentitions, or various samples of human historic and archaeological material. Research is further facilitated by access to the extensive collections of recent and fossil vertebrates at the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution), Washington, D.C., which is only an hour away. The F.A.E. program also offers opportunities for field work, including research on the ecology of living primates and other mammals in Costa Rica and on Eocene vertebrate faunas in Wyoming.

Students are required to take courses in human anatomy and embryology, organ histology, evolutionary biology, biomechanics, mammalian and primate evolution, and statistics, while other course work is arranged to suit the requirements and interests of the individual. In addition, a comprehensive oral examination by the end of the second year. After completing the human anatomy course, each student also gains valuable experience as a teaching assistant for medical and undergraduate human anatomy courses.
As a result of the interdisciplinary training of the F.A.E. Graduate Program, our graduates are well equipped to face the challenge of today's academic job market. See the links below for further information about the program.

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 & Computational Mathematics

Certificate Master's Part-time Hybrid In-person
  • Whiting School of Engineering

Today's advances in areas as diverse as biomedicine, the Internet, communications, defense technologies, and commerce all require individuals with a sound background in applied mathematics and computation. Mathematical tools make it possible to create representations of the world that facilitate analysis of a problem. The computational side provides the means for producing the numbers, graphics, rules and other output that enable designers and decision-makers to solve the problem.

Our part-time Applied and Computational Mathematics trains you in both of these essential aspects of modern analysis—mathematical and computational—preparing you to understand and then solve critical problems in a wide range of application areas. Students may choose from optional concentrations in Probability and Statistics, Applied Analysis, Operations Research, Information Technology and Computation, and Simulation and Modeling.

Applied Biomedical Engineering

Certificate Master's Part-time Hybrid In-person Online
  • Whiting School of Engineering

The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Applied Biomedical Engineering program gives practicing scientists the opportunity to enhance their skills in engineering so that they can solve today’s most critical problems in biology and medicine.

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 Health Sciences Informatics

Doctoral Master's Full-time In-person Online
  • School of Medicine

The Division of Health Sciences Informatics at the School of Medicine seeks to advance the development and use of information technology for decision-making, research, health care delivery, and individual academic growth, and to increase the awareness of these resources among the Johns Hopkins health sciences community.

The division offers a 24-month, campus-based master's program focused on an independent research project resulting in a thesis, and a doctoral program that offers the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research projects in clinical informatics. The master's program is also available online.

Applied Mathematics & Statistics

Doctoral Major Master's Minor Full-time In-person
  • Whiting School of Engineering

Applied mathematics and statistics is an integral part of emerging fields such as computational medicine/biology, language processing, information security, and computer science. In today’s data-intensive world, it is used to answer questions and solve problems in areas as diverse as finance, government and law, medicine, and national defense.

Applied Physics

Certificate Master's Part-time Hybrid In-person
  • Whiting School of Engineering

As one of the few advanced degree programs in applied physics in the world, the Applied Physics program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals offers you the opportunity to focus on a wide range of topics—from condensed matter to interstellar space.

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.
