Hainan University has four characteristic qualities: its tropical location, its proximity to the ocean, its role in a special economic zone and the area's tourism. It offers nine categories of disciplines in philosophy, economics, law, literature, natural sciences, agriculture, engineering and management. The university has four major academic schools including 21 colleges, and hosts two national level key disciplines, and 16 provincial and ministerial level key disciplines. There are 74 undergraduate programs, 21 postgraduate programs of first-level disciplines and five doctorate programs.

Hainan University has established interschool cooperation relationships with over 80 well-known universities in over 20 countries. It has invited hundreds of famous scholars and professors for teaching and academic communication, like Zhores I. Alferov, Nobel laureate in physics. Meantime, teachers and managerial staff are sent to overseas universities for learning and development.
