About the program

“Being part of the first generation of the Master's program of Anthropology in English changed my life. Studying at ECNU improved my academic understanding of a discipline that was new to me. This happened due to the assistance of highly experienced professors who created a stimulating environment during the classes and the extracurricular activities organized by the department.

As professors' knowledge involve several branches of Anthropology, my project on the anthropological experience of literary translation found its place.

On top of that, the department of foreign students at ECNU does a good job in taking care of the students and the facilities bth, on campus and dorms are comfortable and adequate, creating a perfect environment for studying.”
