This Summer Do More, Achieve More!

Qualified high school and undergraduate students can have the opportunity to take JHU pre-college programs and undergraduate level courses during the summer. In addition, to earning college credit, students experience life at Hopkins while living on campus and engaging in academic and social activities with their peers.

Discover Hopkins is an intensive program designed to expose selected students (ages 15-18) to various courses such as Introduction to Lab Research, The Hospital, Medical School Intensive, Introduction to Biology and Medicine, Psychological Profiling, Application of Abnormal Psychology to Forensic Cases, and more.

Summer University offers high school students the opportunity to take freshman and sophomore JHU credit classes in arts and sciences and engineering with many of the same faculty that would teach the course during fall and spring terms.

Mini-Term offers similar benefits to the Summer University program but are condensed into two intensive weeks.

It is designed to improve your academic English and learn about the U.S. education system with visits to historic colleges and universities.
