Hopkins-Nanjing Center Certificate
The Hopkins-Nanjing Center (HNC), is a one-of-a-kind residential academic community in Nanjing, China, committed to cross-cultural learning, free and open academic inquiry, and advanced bilingual proficiency.
The one-year Certificate in Chinese and American Studies provides students with flexibility in course selection while deepening their knowledge of Sino-global relations.
Our target-language curriculum gives graduates a competitive edge. American and international students take courses in Chinese, while Chinese students are taught primarily in English. A shared residential community deepens cultural ties and creates individuals who are both bilingual and at home in two cultures.
Alumni of the Hopkins-Nanjing Center are renowned for their Chinese-language proficiency and their multidisciplinary approach to understanding international affairs and China studies. They play key roles in government, business, journalism, NGOs, and academia and are uniquely poised to understand and manage diverse facets of US-China commercial, academic, economic, and political relations.
