Part of a first-year’s summer to-do list is the Launch program. This program is a dedicated first-year program that helps students start to explore post-graduate opportunities, meet their first year Career Coach, and get ready to apply for internships and jobs when the time is right.

Each month, your Career Coach will guide you through key milestones, from exploring possible careers to planning your first summer. Students hear from their coaches in July or August. Find out more about Launch.


Get Specific in Career Academies

First-year students graduate from Launch into a Career Academy, which will help you make connections and build skills relevant to the fields you’re interested in. Most students choose more than one, which reflects JHU’s interdisciplinary curriculum, and the vibrant diversity of our student body!
