The internationalization of higher education has become a significant element to guide the progress and development of the world's top universities. The paper compares the methods to internationalize faculties and students in the nine world-class Institutes and Departments of East Asian Studies in North American Universities. The results show that these institutes and departments all have faculties with backgrounds related to East Asian countries and provide students with diversified academic projects, internship programs and scholarships. Besides, the Schools and Departments of Foreign Languages in China should learn from North American universities to internationalize their faculties, teaching systems, learning atmosphere and scholarship programs.

Key words: internationalization, North American universities, top Institutes and Departments of East Asian Studies, Chinese universities, schools and departments of foreign languages
