Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences is one of the core divisions of Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus. Our mission is the creation of new knowledge and the education of our students, undergraduate and graduate alike. Comprising 22 academic departments and more than 30 centers, programs, and institutes, the Krieger School is home to students interested in the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and the arts. The excellence of these programs dates back to 1876, when Daniel Coit Gilman assembled a faculty of philosophy of international distinction. Today, inquiry and discovery remain the engine and fuel that drive teaching and learning in the school. The departmental and program descriptions that follow are notable illustrations of the interdisciplinary offerings and opportunities available for a student to structure a unique field of study in the humanities, natural sciences, quantitative studies, and behavioral sciences.
