The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), based in Washington, D.C., is one of the world’s most prestigious and leading graduate schools devoted to the study of international affairs, economics, diplomacy, and policy research and education.[1] SAIS is a part of The Johns Hopkins University.

Institution
The SAIS main campus is located on Massachusetts Avenue’s Embassy Row, just off of Dupont Circle and across the Brookings Institution and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and next to the Center for Global Development and the Peterson Institute. The school is regarded as a major center of political debate as it served as a base for a number of prominent political scientists

Studies, Russian & Eurasian Studies, and Western Hemisphere Studies. SAIS offers multi-disciplinary instruction leading to the degrees of Master of Arts, Master of International Public Policy (MIPP, a mid-career full-time degree), and Doctor of Philosophy. Around 250 students graduate from SAIS Washington, D.C. campus each year from the two-year Master of Arts program in International Relations and International Economics. SAIS also maintains formal joint-degree programs with the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, the Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Stanford Law School, the University of Virginia School of Law, and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. Since 1990, SAIS and the Fletcher School have been the only non-law schools in the United States to participate in the prestigious Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Competing against fulltime law students, SAIS generalists have performed very well. SAIS has twice placed second overall out of 12 schools and advanced to the "final four" in its region. In head-to-head competitions, SAIS has defeated law schools such as Georgetown, Maryland, and Virginia. A study conducted by the Institute for the Theory and Practice of International Relations[2] at the College of William & Mary examined graduate international relations programs throughout the United States, interviewing over 1,000 professionals in the field, with the results subsequently published in the November/December 2005 issue of Foreign Policy (FP) magazine. One of study’s questions asked: "What do you consider the top five terminal masters programs in international relations for students looking to pursue a policy career?" From the study, 65% of respondents named Johns Hopkins University-SAIS as being the top-ranked program. SAIS received the most votes, followed by Georgetown (Walsh), Harvard (Kennedy), Tufts (Fletcher), and Columbia (SIPA). In 2007, Foreign Policy magazine produced the same study, and although SAIS stayed as one of the top-ranked programs, it moved to second position as Georgetown (Walsh) received the most votes.

History
SAIS was founded in 1943 by Paul H. Nitze and Christian Herter and became part of The Johns Hopkins University in 1950. The school was established during World War II by a group of statesmen who sought new methods of preparing men and women to cope with the international responsibilities that would be thrust upon the United States in the postwar world. The founders assembled a faculty of scholars and professionals (often borrowed from local universities) to teach international relations, international economics, and foreign languages to a small group of students. The curriculum was designed to be both scholarly and practical. The natural choice for the location of the school was Washington, D.C., a city where international resources are abundant and where American foreign policy is shaped and set in motion. When the school opened in 1944, 15 students were enrolled.[3] In 1955, the school created the Bologna Center in Italy, the first full-time graduate school located in Europe under the American higher-education system. By 1963, SAIS outgrew its first quarters on Florida Avenue and moved to one of its present buildings on Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. In 1986, the Hopkins-Nanjing Center was created in Nanjing, China, completing the school’s global presence.
