Calling all undergraduates and graduate students on a China-related academic trajectory!
Are you thinking about a career in Sino-American relations or International Studies with a focus on China? Would you like to master your Chinese language skills and transform them into a professionally and academically-applicable asset? Are you interested in a graduate program that would allow you to use your Chinese in seminar-style classes and live and learn alongside Chinese graduate students while continuing your study with respected Chinese faculty in historic Nanjing? If so, then there is no better place for you than the Hopkins-Nanjing Center!
For more information about our programs and fellowships and to request a brochure, please check out our website, www.nanjing.jhu.edu, or stop by the Hopkins-Nanjing Center's table at the Graduate and Professional School Fair next Tuesday, November 3rd between 2-6pm in the Husky Union Building (HUB) Ballroom.
The Hopkins-Nanjing Center is the only graduate program of its kind - a collaborative effort where degrees are jointly awarded by the Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. The Center offers both a one-year Graduate Certificate in Chinese and American Studies and a two-year MA in International Studies with a choice of focus in one of four concentrations: International Politics, International Economics, International and Comparative Law, and Chinese Studies. Students participating in the MA program will receive a degree that is conferred by both Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. The Center is a fully bi-cultural and bi-lingual institution located in Nanjing, China, on the campus of Nanjing University. Non-Chinese students take their classes in Mandarin Chinese while Chinese students take their classes in English, and MA students write and defend a thesis in their target language at the end of the two-year program. Hopkins-Nanjing Center graduates join a growing global alumni network of over 1,800.
Current seniors or recent graduates from the Economics Department may be interested in applying for the Carnegie Endowment's Jr. Fellows Program. Each year, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (http://www.carnegieendowment.org/) holds a rigorous national competition to select approximately 8-10 graduating seniors and recent graduates (within 1 year) to serve as paid research assistants. They are matched with senior associates--academics, former government officials, lawyers, and journalists from around the world--to work on a variety of international affairs issues. Positions are paid, full-time positions for one year. Junior fellows are currently paid a gross salary of $2,916.66 per month ($35,000 per year). A full benefits package is also provided. Please share the information below with your students who may be interested in applying.
Students must be nominated to compete for these positions at the national level. To apply for one of UW's two nomination spots, students should complete the UW campus application by our campus deadline of Nov. 17, 2009.
