Pre-College Students: Summer Intensive

Discover Hopkins! Discover something you'll love.

Summer Intensive programs (formerly Discover Hopkins) 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.

A typical day includes instructor-led morning lectures, supplemented by afternoon field trips and guest speakers—faculty, alumni, and other leading researchers or practitioners—will enhance your learning of the topic.

Summer Intensive includes weekend excursions to nearby attractions such as Baltimore Inner Harbor, Hershey Park, and Washington DC.

Summer Intensive is open to both residential and commuter students. Students register for one course (1 credit) per session and may enroll in up to 3 sessions (6 weeks) for up to 3 credits. Students choose the session or sessions that best fits their schedule.
