About EPHE

EPHE is organized in three faculties. Each faculty is dedicated to either earth and life sciences, history and philology or religious studies. The faculty for religious studies is one of the biggest worldwide with about 80 permanent faculty members. Faculty members are full- or assistant research professors (directeur d’études or maîtres de conférences) who are devoted to research and the education of M.A., Ph.D. and postdoctoral students as well as peers and the general educated public.
The École Pratique des Hautes Études is a member of the university cluster Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL) and the Campus Condorcet.
