In addition to graduate education at the schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering, Johns Hopkins also has several
respected graduate professional schools.
- The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the School of Nursing have exceptional reputations, and the Bloomberg
School of Public Health is renowned for contributions worldwide to preventive medicine and the health of large
- The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International
Studies (simply referred to as "SAIS"), based in Washington,
DC, is one of the country's leading graduate schools devoted to the study of international relations and is recognized as a
world leader in international affairs, political economy, diplomacy, and policy research and education. SAIS has international
campuses in Bologna, Italy and Nanjing, China. In
addition, since 1990, SAIS has been one of only two non-law schools in the United States to participate in the prestigious Philip
C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Although SAIS students obviously enter the competition with a comparative
disadvantage (all of those against whom they must compete have at least a year of law school), they have done remarkably well.
Twice, SAIS has placed second overall out of 12 schools, and advanced to the “final four” in its region. In
head-to-head competitions, SAIS has defeated first-class law schools such as the University of Virginia and the University of
- The celebrated Peabody Conservatory of
Music, located in downtown Baltimore, became a division of the University in
1977. The Conservatory retains its own student body and grants its own degrees in
musicology, though both Hopkins and Peabody students may take courses at both institutions.
The University offers education abroad through centers in Germany, Singapore, and Italy. The University operates the
(APL) in Laurel, Maryland, which specializes in research for the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA and other Government
agencies. The Space Telescope
is located on the Hopkins campus and controls, analyzes, and collects data from the Hubble Space Telescope.
