    Are you an academically advanced high school student looking for a fast-paced college-level learning experience and a chance to engage with like-minded peers? Summer at Hopkins offers an unrivaled opportunity to learn from Hopkins’ world-renowned instructors and connect with academically oriented students from around the globe.

    Discover how chemistry, one of the oldest scientific disciplines, has made significant contributions within numerous fields such as health care, medicine, pharmaceutical sciences, materials and polymer science, and forensic chemistry. For example, the development of new drugs involves chemical analysis and synthesis of new compounds. Chemistry also plays a vital role in the development and growth of several consumer-based industries such as pigments and paints, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and oil and natural gas. In this program, you will focus on the applications of chemistry in medicine and pharmaceutical sciences.

    This self-paced program is primarily delivered asynchronously; however, your instructor may schedule live interactions as well. Please refer to your syllabus for these opportunities and for your important program deadlines.

    Prerequisite: Background in Chemistry and Biology is strongly recommended.
