Discover Hopkins Programs



Short in length but not in content! Discover Hopkins Programs are intensive programs designed to expose you to topics from different perspectives. For instance, observe top researchers and listen to experts at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, as you survey the latest in environmental health.

Instructors will lead you through your topic with a morning lecture. The experts captivate your afternoons--faculty, alumni, and other guest speakers who are leading researchers or practitioners on the subject. We don't stop here--we enhance your learning of the topic with a variety of guided field trips in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Virginia, or West Virginia.

The Discover Hopkins Programs are open to both residential and commuter students. Students register for one course (1cr) per session, and may enroll in up to 3 sessions (6 weeks). Students choose the session or sessions that best fits their schedule.

Get started today by applying online or find out if you're eligible or pre-certified. Financial aid is available as need-based partial tuition grants.
