  • The majority of rooms in traditional residence halls are doubled (you and a roommate), with a few singles and shared bathrooms.
  • suite-style accommodations with private bathrooms, doubles, singles, or triples, as well as central heating and air conditioning (some also have small kitchenettes)

 

Off-Campus Accommodation

 

All four Baltimore locations are easily accessible by foot from a wide selection of rental homes and apartments. The Off-Campus Housing Office at JHU, which posts ads for vacant properties, can be of assistance.

English Graduate Program

 

The Johns Hopkins English graduate programme is well-equipped to assist students in locating rewarding employment that uses their skills. Due to the modest size, the university can help each student find a job. In addition to hosting visitors to discuss with graduate students about professions inside and outside of academia, the university allows students with publications, applications, and interviews. They also tap into the vibrant Hopkins alumni network, which is dedicated to helping current students. 

 

Students who are applying for academic jobs have years of experience doing the kind of work that is required by the field. Students who are searching for non-academic professions have participated in workshops and presentations that the department and other campus divisions have sponsored, frequently including Hopkins alumni, to help them get ready for their desired careers. The university's newly reorganised and well-resourced Office of Integrative Learning and Life Design is also available to all students.

 

17 per cent of PhD graduates since 2009 have found employment in industries like publishing, speechwriting, the law, and professional editing. The remaining 83% have moved on to post-doctoral fellowships or academic posts in institutions. At Stanford University, Cornell University, City College of New York, Case Western Reserve University, St. Mary's College of Calgary, and the University of Rochester, this includes tenure-track positions.
