Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC)

October 21, 2015

The Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC) opened in 1986 as a one-of-a-kind center for international studies in China. An educational collaboration between the Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University, it is located on the downtown campus of Nanjing University. Chinese and international students live and learn international relations together in a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to free and open academic exploration and intellectual dialogue. At the heart of the HNC is its superior research library featuring more than 120,000 volumes in English and Chinese and the electronic assets of both the Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University.

The HNC upholds the highest academic standards in the pursuit of educating future leaders. 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 strong competitive edge in the increasingly dynamic world of Sino-global relations.

HNC students can choose from a range of courses in six concentrations, and may pursue one of three graduate study options:

  • One-year Certificate of Graduate Studies
  • Two-year Master of Arts in International Studies (M.A.I.S.)
  • HNC Certificate/SAIS MA option in Nanjing and Washington, D.C.
