Since The Johns Hopkins University's founding in 1876 as America's first research university, graduate and postdoctoral education have been tightly integrated into the university's mission. Beginning with Johns Hopkins' first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, and our founding faculty—Basil Gildersleeve (classics), James Sylvester (mathematics), Ira Remsen (chemistry), Henry Rowland (physics) and Henry Martin (biology)—the university has promoted learning through discovery.
With 16,846 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 Education and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees, as well as a variety of full- and part-time masters degrees.
