The M.A. program at Jinan University’s American Studies Center was created in 2006 through the efforts of Professor Wu Jin-ping and his colleagues. It focuses on American politics. Because the M.A. program is still in its initial stage, it can not offer all necessary courses covering American politics, and each year only 3-4 students are enrolled in the program. In addition, only four teachers have received short-term training at American universities. Each year, more than 20 lectures are given by the core faculty members, by consulate officials and by guest professors from the U.S. and elsewhere.
