Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
In 1876, The Johns Hopkins University’s first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, helped create America’s first research university: a school where original research and the creation of knowledge would be as important as instruction. Today, the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences—the direct descendant of Gilman’s original institution—remains true to his vision.
The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences enrolls over 3,000 undergraduate and 2,600 graduate students. Relatively small in size, the school is a giant in academia, offering students rich, collaborative educational experiences of the kind that rarely occur at much larger schools.
