Undergraduate Courses

Every semester, department faculty and postdocs teach a range of classes in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences on the Homewood campus, as part of the undergraduate major and minor in the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology. The requirements for this degree are here.

The Integrated Student Information System (ISIS) is Johns Hopkins’ university-wide, web-based student information system. You will also find complete descriptions of courses in the Office of the Registrar’s course schedule, in the History of Science and Technology section.
