The Johns Hopkins University,[6] commonly referred to as Johns Hopkins, JHU, or simply Hopkins, is a private research university based in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Johns Hopkins maintains campuses in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Italy, China, and Singapore.

The university was founded on January 22, 1876 and was the first U.S. university to teach through seminars,[7] instead of solely through lectures, as well as the first U.S. university to offer an undergraduate major (as opposed to a purely liberal arts curriculum).[citation needed] As such, Johns Hopkins was a model for most large research universities in the United States.[citation needed]

Johns Hopkins is ranked 18th internationally in the 2010 Academic Ranking of World Universities and 13th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2010-11.[8] Over time, 33 Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with Johns Hopkins (only 13 schools claim more),[9] and the university is among the most cited institutions in the world.[10]

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has ranked Johns Hopkins #1 among U.S. academic institutions in total science, medical and engineering research and development spending for 31 years in a row.[11]
