Best MA/PhD Programs/Scholars for Sino-American Relations


Recommended Posts

I'm interested in pursuing an MA/PhD in International Relations with the hopes of going on to work in a think tank.

 

I have two questions:

 

1. Which programs are renown for their focus on Sino-American international relations?

 

2. Which scholars are renown for their focus on Sino-American international relations?

 

Thanks in advance!

I don't know of any graduate programs that solely concentrate on Sino-American studies.  There are a number of programs that concentrate on Asian countries and these countries' foreign policy.  The U.S. relations would certainly be a major component of that foreign policy.  Most IR graduate schools allow you to specialize in "China Studies" but that just means there are 3-4 professors who teach classes about China. There are a few programs that have a real specialization in this area.  Here are two you should check out:

 

1) UC San Diego School of International Relations and Pacific Studies

 

2) University of British Columbia Master of Asia Pacific Policy Studies

GWU has David Shambaugh, who's a real expert.

 

I actually just finished his book on the CCP. I've picked up his most recent as well.

 

I really like his writing style and direction. I may reach out to him for more details.
