Peabody students can enroll in classes at Homewood. The main challenge is finding courses of interest that will fit into your schedule.
The Homewood catalog is posted on line at http://www.jhu.edu/~registr/schedule.html
Once you identify a Homewood course (or courses) in which you hope to enroll, you must obtain the appropriate form to register (yellow forms are used for classes in the school of Arts and Sciences); this form must be completed and signed by Peabody’s Registrar or a member of his staff. The Peabody Registrar will then submit the form to Homewood (unless you prefer to deliver it to the Homewood Registrar’s Office yourself). If you have any questions about the process, please contact our Registrar’s Office.
Some Homewood courses are especially popular: if you find yourself on a waiting list, show up at the first class and discuss your situation with the professor, this often works!
Pointers below should help you to navigate the above website. As you browse the listings in the School of Arts and Sciences, the “Course Schedule Information” can help; basic guidelines gleaned from this information follow:
The number following the decimal identifies the specific course. In general, Peabody students can only enroll in courses designated by a 100-299 number after the decimal. These are lower division undergraduate courses. In some cases it may be possible to enroll in a 300-499 course (upper division undergraduate), but only as an exception. Courses designated by 500 and above are for advanced independent study and graduate work–only possible for a Peabody undergrad in a most exceptional circumstance.
