Full scholarships – two-year MA in Anthropology (English language) – Shanghai

By | January 30, 2017

The Research Institute of Anthropology of the East China Normal University offers full scholarships for an all-English language Master’s program in Anthropology. The program is two years long, and can be extended one more year. All courses are in English, taught by Chinese and international faculty.

The scholarships are awarded to all the students accepted into the program. They cover full university fees, an individual room in the graduate students residence, and 3000 RMB per month for the two years. Applicants must be non-Chinese citizens and should possess a BA degree in anthropology or a closely related field in social sciences or humanities (previous concentration in anthropology is not required).

There is no requirement for Chinese language ability. The program includes classes of Chinese language. Housing is provided on campus, offering a privileged position to exchange with Chinese students and learn the language.

Course work is concentrated in the first year, from September to June. The second year is devoted to fieldwork and writing a dissertation. Courses cover the main orientations in anthropology, and allow students to devise their own research project for the MA thesis, with fieldwork carried out in China or abroad.

The faculty is composed of the members of the Research Institute of Anthropology and of Chinese and international visiting professors.

The deadline for applications is March 31st, 2017.
