There are all kinds of ways for students at Johns Hopkins University to explore their interests in the arts. Johns Hopkins offers majors in the history of art, film & media studies, and Writing Seminars, as well as minors in museums & society, music, and theatre arts & studies. The Arts Certificate is also available to students interested in actively pursuing the fine arts at Johns Hopkins while participating in an academic major.
The nearby Peabody Institute, a division of Johns Hopkins, offers students a plethora of opportunities to study music, voice, and dance. Students can engage their interest through classes, private lessons, or even the pursuit of a Bachelors of Music degree from Peabody at the same time that they earn a Bachelors of Arts or Sciences from Johns Hopkins. For students interested in the visual arts, the Homewood Art Workshops offer studio arts courses in drawing, painting, cartooning, design and photography. Hopkins undergraduates also have the opportunity to cross-register at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
Johns Hopkins has a number of different programs and facilities available to students who wish to pursue the arts as a hobby. The Mattin Center is the focal point of the arts at Johns Hopkins. It houses a Digital Media Center, a black box theater, and a number of studios and rehearsal spaces. Many of the student arts groups at Johns Hopkins utilize these spaces for meetings and rehearsals, while individual students use them to practice.
In addition to all of the opportunities that the university offers, the city of Baltimore boasts a wealth of resources in the arts for Johns Hopkins students to utilize, including a number of theaters, museums, and concert venues.
