This tradition, which has endured since the founding of the EPHE, is at the root of the School’s main vocation in preparing for research degrees today.

Vocational degrees are also offered, namely within the IESR (e.g. the vocational Master in Religions and Society). These programs, whether in Earth and Life Studies or in Historical and Philological Studies and Religious Studies, are in line with the research interests of the EPHE which often invests itself in innovating areas. This factor combined with the multidisciplinary structure of its Sections explains why the EPHE offers studies programs which are broadly unique to it, both for its teaching approach and topics covered.


  • Conferences (lectures, seminars and courses) in the Historical and Philological Sciences and the Religious Sciences Sections are open to all students and auditors.

Course modules in the Earth and Life Sciences are restricted to students registered for initial or continuing training in this Section.
