Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies

The Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies (HNC), founded in 1986, is a unique bicultural, bilingual collaboration between the Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. Students earn a graduate certificate or master’s degree in China, advance their Mandarin language skills, and gain a multidisciplinary foundation in international affairs and China studies. Applicants should have prior proficiency in Chinese at the intermediate to advanced level. This is a great graduate option for students hoping to improve their Chinese language proficiency, and pursue a career related to international relations.

Japanese Children's Home Internship Program (JCHIP)


JCHIP sends UC Davis students to various parts of Japan to participate in the operation of children’s homes as ambassadors of international, cultural, and educational exchange.  The homes are not quite orphanages, and not quite group homes (there is no English equivalent)—they are institutions where children who cannot be cared for by their parents or relatives are given preparation for productive and successful lives.  Together with the Japanese staff and native college-student interns, UC Davis interns will share in the lives of school-age youngsters, doing chores, playing games, and overseeing activities.  As an intern from overseas, it is important for the UC Davis student to be a model international representative and help open the children's eyes to the rest of the world.

Currently eight children’s homes in different parts of Japan accept UC Davis interns.  Homes are located in:  Kumamoto, Kyoto, Saitama, Tokyo, Fukushima, Aichi, Yokohama, and Sendai.
