All-English MA Program in Anthropology

http://lxs.ecnu.edu.cn/EN/msg.php?id=58

 

The Research Institute of Anthropology in the School of Social Development, ECNU, was established in the autumn of 2011 by Professor Nicholas Tapp, who was an internationally well-known anthropologist and specialist on the Miao (Hmong) studies, and has now completed highly successful years of its existence.

For our all-English MA program in socio-cultural Anthropology, there is no requirement on Chinese language. This program may lead to the PhD, or can be undertaken on its own. Our fields cover general socio-cultural anthropology and applied anthropology, with particular specialities and courses in the anthropology of money, anthropology of food, visual anthropology, anthropology of development, anthropology of religion, ethnobotany, ethnicity and minorities in China.

The all-English MA program consists of four core courses (Cultural Anthropology, Anthropological Theory, Anthropological Methods and Ethnography of Chinese Society), four optional courses, a 6-month fieldwork, and a MA thesis. Major elective courses include Issues of Power and Religion, the Anthropology of Food, Visual and Media Anthropology, Anthropology of Money, and Economic Anthropology. Other options in urban anthropology, anthropology of the state, anthropology of tourism, and ethnobotany are also available.

The four core courses are taught in the first semester (September - January). Students also need to choose another four selective courses in the second semester (March - June). The MA program includes a period (6 months) of intensive fieldwork, on which the thesis will be written in English. The Institute also includes the Centre of Ethnicity and Development which concentrates research and teaching expertise in the areas of development and ethnicity. Totally, students need 21 credits from the anthropology institute and 9 credits from other departments to complete the MA program.

The master degree thesis should be 30,000-50,000 words in length (excluding footnotes and references). It must be based on original research, mark a new contribution to knowledge, show knowledge of relevant literature, and be well and clearly written and presented. Normally, in the third semester, original research for the thesis must be conducted normally based on fieldwork of 6 months. A proposal for field research should be submitted before that for entrance to the field. Supervision of the thesis is by a Panel or Committee of up to 3 members with professional doctorate qualifications in Anthropology. The thesis will be examined by one internal examiner (from the institute) and one outside examiner (from another institute/department or another university), nominated by the Main Supervisor. Three or five professors will be organized for the MA thesis defense.
