Fujian Normal University - FNU
A key institution of higher learning in Fujian with a century-old history and a glorious tradition, Fujian Normal University (FNU) has been hailed as the province’s “cradle of teachers.” Consistent with its preeminent status as a major university in Southeastern China, FNU’s development has been a priority for the government since the early days of New China. Over the past decade or so, it has received on its campus many national leaders. Virtually all the top leaders of the province have paid regular visits to the University to show their support for its work. The frequent visits by these dignitaries are indicative of the extent to which the leadership has been attaching importance to the University. Located in Fuzhou, the capital city of Fujian province, the headquarters of FNU is made up of two campuses, the Qishan Campus and the Cangshan Campus, with a total land area of about 230 hectares. Right now, the University consists of 28 colleges, which together offer 56 undergraduate programs, over 120 master programs (including those conferring professional degrees in pedagogy, public administration, physical culture and arts), about 50 doctoral programs and 7 post-doctoral research centers. These programs cover subject areas in literature, history, philosophy, physics, engineering, pedagogy, economics, law, business management, agriculture, etc.. A balanced and coordinated development of this wide spectrum of disciplines has given FNU a distinct identity as a multi-disciplinal comprehensive university.
