The Johns Hopkins University was founded in 1876 as America’s first research university. Since that time, graduate and postdoctoral education have been tightly integrated into the university’s mission. Beginning with Johns Hopkins’ first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, the university has promoted learning through discovery.
With over 16,000 graduate students in our nine schools, Johns Hopkins offers the Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Science, Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Public Health, Doctor of Nursing Practice, Doctor of Engineering, Doctor of Education, Doctor of Musical Arts, and Doctor of International Affairs degrees, as well as a variety of full- and part-time masters degrees.
As part of the University’s commitment to data transparency related to doctoral and postdoctoral training, Johns Hopkins is a founding member of the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science. The University has expanded that commitment beyond the life sciences and publishes program statistics for all its PhD programs.
