The Tsinghua University – Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University Dual Degree Master’s Program is the first dual degree master’s program focused on global politics and economics run cooperatively by Chinese and U.S. institutions of higher education. As an opportunity for students to develop a sophisticated understanding of international affairs and law, the curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary breadth, a solid foundation in economics, and rigorous understanding of key world regions. After graduation, students will be familiar with Sino-U.S. political and economic systems, gain in-depth knowledge of various parts of the world, and grasp advanced analytical techniques. They will be prepared to actively participate in global governance, while at the same time contributing significantly towards country-level development.The entire program will be taught in English.
Generally, students will require five semesters to complete the program, with the first two semesters spent in Beijing at Tsinghua University, and the next three semesters spent in Washington D.C. at SAIS. Students can choose to extend their studies by a single semester at either Tsinghua University or SAIS.
Courses at Tsinghua will be specifically designed to provide policy perspectives on global challenges in the fields of environment, energy, development, security, and migration.
