Besides medicine and BME, what is JHU known for?

<p>What are its best and most renowned programs? I never hear much about the school but am looking into it.</p>

<p>Writing Sems, IS, Public Health, Neuroscience, Environmental Engineering</p>

<p>Physics Department is getting pretty hot.</p>

<p>That and also the French and Cognitive Science departments. It's pretty well rounded.</p>

<p>Oh dear Lord, I guess it isn't your fault. I've asked some whoppers in my day as well. To add to the aforementioned departments, their History & Art History is one of the strongest in the world. Also, I believe Hopkins was the first American institution to start a Classics program. Hopkins is truly fabulous.</p>

<p>Are you saying they didn't study antiquity until Hopkins came around in 1876? I don't think so...</p>

<p>Quoted from Hopkins</p>

<p>"Since its foundation in 1876, the Johns Hopkins University's mission has included both teaching and research. The Department of Classics has always played a leading role in this mission. It was at Johns Hopkins that the first modern Classics department was organized, inspired by the most effective model of scholarship at the time--the German seminar, which combined teaching with research."</p>

<p>Anyway, Hopkins is pretty underrated when it comes to majors. </p>

<p>Everyone above pretty much said it: IR, Public Health, History, Writing Sems.</p>

<p>Thank you sozo91! I probably did not convey it properly. :/</p>

<p>Hopkins has traditionally had a solid Near Eastern Studies department as well.</p>

<p>It's in very poor shape at the moment, but hopefully they will be able to make new hires soon.</p>

<p>As far as Classics goes, my cynical side says that a university usually boasts that it is the one of the oldest when it can't boast it is one of the best.</p>
