School of Foreign Languages (SFL) was established in 2004. It offers eight undergraduate majors in English, Translation, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Arabic. In 2021, SFL was awarded the Early Constructed Program for the Master of Translation and Interpreting（MTI）by Shanghai Municipal Education Commission.
