About

The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (established in 2019) has identified an urgent need for AI professionals in the workforce to meet an extremely high demand. A leader in AI, Johns Hopkins offers the technical expertise and educational resources needed to close this gap, infusing the field with innovative professionals.

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) program balances theoretical concepts with the practical knowledge you can apply to real world systems and processes. At the program's completion, you will:

  1. Be able to describe the requirements, drivers, functions, components, interdependencies, risks, and quality factors for various systems and processes.
  • Possess the advanced skills needed to develop new artificial intelligence features.
  • Led by faculty who are subject-matter experts, you can choose courses that deeply explore areas of AI, including robotics, natural language processing, image processing, and more—fully online.

    Requirements

    Master's Degree

    Admission Requirements

    • You must meet the general admission requirements that pertain to all master's degree candidates.
    • Your prior education must include the following prerequisites: (1) multivariate calculus, (2) linear algebra, (3) probability and statistics, and (4) a course in a programming language, such as Python. Basic knowledge of data structures is also required.
    • If your prior education does not include the prerequisites listed above, you may still be admitted under provisional status, followed by full admission once you have completed the missing prerequisites. Missing prerequisites may be completed with Johns Hopkins Engineering (some prerequisites beyond calculus are available) or at another regionally accredited institution.
    • When reviewing an application, your academic and professional background will be considered.
    • If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.

    Degree Requirements

    • Ten courses must be completed within five years.
    • The curriculum consists of four core courses and six electives from the Artificial Intelligence (AI) program.
    • Nine credits must be taken at the 700-level. One or more core courses can be waived by your advisor if you have received an A or B in equivalent graduate courses. In this case, you may replace the waived core courses with the same number of other graduate Artificial Intelligence courses and may take these courses after all remaining core course requirements have been satisfied.
    • Only one C-range grade (C+, C, or C−) can count toward the master's degree.
    • All course selections are subject to advisor approval.

    Graduate Certificate

    Admission Requirements

    • You must meet the general admission requirements that pertain to all graduate certificate candidates.
    • Your prior education must include the following prerequisites: (1) multivariate calculus, (2) linear algebra, (3) probability and statistics and (4) a course in a programming language such as Python. Basic knowledge of data structures is also required
    • If your prior education does not include the prerequisites listed above, you may still be admitted under provisional status, followed by full admission once you have completed the missing prerequisites. Missing prerequisites may be completed with Johns Hopkins Engineering (some prerequisites beyond calculus are available) or at another regionally accredited institution.
    • If you decide to pursue the full master’s degree, all courses will apply to the master’s degree provided they meet program requirements and fall within a five-year time limit. You must declare your intention prior to completing the certificate.
    • If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.

    Certificate Requirements

    • Four courses must be completed within three years.
    • The curriculum consists of four required foundation courses, as listed in the Courses section below.
    • One or more required courses can be waived by your advisor if you have received a grade of a B− or above in equivalent graduate courses. In this case, you may replace the waived required courses with the same number of other graduate Artificial Intelligence courses and may take these courses after all remaining course requirements have been satisfied.
    • Only one C-range grade (C+, C, or C−) can count toward the master's degree.
    • All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
