Johns Hopkins Psychology & Brain Sciences Summer Programs
- Baltimore, MD
Fun fact: Johns Hopkins founded America’s first psychological laboratory.
So, if you’re hunting for a stellar remote option, look no further than Johns Hopkins’ pre-college psychology summer programs. Nine different courses are available, and all run for two weeks.
Students can opt for a broader overview of the field in courses like Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Neuroscience, or Introduction to Medical and Mental Health Interpreting. Further, they can explore specialized topics like Childhood Disorders & Treatments, Minds and Machines, Neurobiology: Cellular and Systems, Neuroscience and Human Behavior, Psychological Profiling, or Psychopathology and Its Development. While all courses are delivered asynchronously, some may have synchronous components. For example, students enrolled in Minds and Machines will need to attend a 90-minute live discussion once a week. Meanwhile, Introduction to Medical and Mental Health Interpreting participants must meet face-to-face for two hours every Monday.
Outside of academics, students can enroll in virtual clubs, like the Public Health Club or Brain and Behavior Club. They also attend special events such as workshops and guest speakers.
All applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.0 and submit a transcript along with their application. Lastly, if they are accepted—and successfully complete the program—they’ll earn one college credit.
