Think Summer! SAIS Announces Summer Programs at HNC

SAIS is launching its first ever English-language graduate program in Nanjing from June 23 – July 31.  The six-week program is designed as an extension of current SAIS summer course offerings in Washington, D.C., building on the school’s longstanding partnership in China.  Students will live and study at HNC facilities with leading SAIS and HNC faculty, taking classes focused on the economic, political, and environmental dynamics of East Asia.

In addition to small, intensive courses, the program offers weekly guided excursions to historical and cultural destinations throughout the region.  Students can get to know Nanjing, spend a day in Hangzhou, and explore Shanghai for a weekend as a practical complement to SAIS classes.

SAIS Summer courses are open to rising undergraduate seniors and recent graduates, and can be a great introduction to life at HNC and the SAIS academic experience.  Credits from these courses can be applied toward an HNC or SAIS master’s degree, or can be transferred to a variety of graduate schools worldwide.
