A Unique Partnership in China
The Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC) opened in 1986 as a one-of-a-kind educational collaboration between The Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. Located on the downtown campus of Nanjing University, the Center upholds the highest American and Chinese academic standards in the pursuit of educating future leaders. The HNC brings together American students and those from other countries (known collectively as international students) with Chinese students in three graduate program options:
 
• One-year Certificate
• Two-year Master of Arts in International Studies (M.A.I.S.)
• HNC Certificate/SAIS MA option in Nanjing and Washington, D.C.
 
International students take most of their courses in Chinese taught by Chinese faculty, while Chinese students are taught by international faculty with courses primarily in English. This target language curriculum is a unique feature of the HNC program that gives our graduates a competitive edge in the increasingly dynamic world of Sino-global relations.
 
Open Academic and Cultural Exchange
 
The HNC is the only China-based international program where the state-of-the-art facilities are spaces for genuinely free and open academic exploration and intellectual dialogue. At the heart of the Center is its superior research library featuring more than 120,000 volumes in English and Chinese, 400 periodicals and the electronic assets of both The Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University.
