Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University started in 1876 when it was inaugurated by its first president named Daniel Coit Gilman. From the very first day of its foundation, the main goal of the university has been to encourage research and promote individual scholars.


The university supports the philosophy that education and research goes hand in hand. In fact, this is the very university that revolutionized higher education in America giving rise to research systems.

More than 130 years of excellence at Johns Hopkins have elapsed, yet it has kept a great balance in academia and research. The University has a history of producing some eminent scholars and students in the field of engineering, life sciences, humanities, art and literature, business and health studies.
The university also enjoys federal funding for research and development more than any other university. Mentioned below are the nine divisions of the university across Baltimore Washington area.
• Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
• Whiting School of Engineering
• Carey Business School
• School of Education
• School of Medicine
• School of Nursing
• The Peabody Institute
• Bloomberg School of Public Health
• School of Advanced International Studies
The Applied Physics Laboratory division of this John Hopkins University is different from the other nine schools as it is a research based mission of the university and is non-academic.
APL, located between Baltimore and Washington, supports national security and also pursues space science, exploration of the Solar System and other civilian research and development.
The campus buildings of Johns Hopkins University stand tall in Baltimore and Washington D.C.
From any of the Johns Hopkins campuses, it’s only a thirty minutes drive from the airport. Washington`s Reagan National Airport offers convenient access to the Washington locations via Metrorail, and Dulles International Airport is west of the nation`s capital.
