The Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC) opened in 1986 as a one-of-a-kind graduate center for international studies in China. This year marks the HNC’s 30th year providing bilingual education and training graduates who contribute to Sino-global relations across a variety of fields. Learn more about the HNC 30th Anniversary Celebration and the HNC’s impact over three decades of US-China relations.
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.
