About

History

EHESS has its origins in the Economics and Social Sciences department of the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (EPHE), created in 1947 under the direction of Lucien Febvre. Over the following three decades this department was highly influential in carving out a place for Social Sciences as an epistemological domain in its own right,

Education

The École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences) is a graduate-only research institution that has a unique standing in the world of research and higher education in France. It hosts scholars from all over the world committed to the study of contemporary societies seen within broad cultural and historical contexts. It trains students up to PhD level in all disciplines of the social and human sciences (history, anthropology, sociology, economics, geography, linguistics, psychology, demography, cognitive science, political science, philosophy and mathematics). 

Research

At EHESS, the spirit of intellectual exchange asserts itself through a unique setup, in which research centers dedicated to broad cultural areas (Asia, Oceania, Russia, the Americas, etc.) collaborate with disciplinary-focused centers (anthropology, history, economics, psychology, etc.) and thematic centers (politics, religion, science, the arts and languages etc.). This framework provides a dynamic and multipronged approach to uncovering the complexities of our social worlds.

Student Reviews

Very good school for grad students not afraid of being by their own
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wide selection of very qualitative courses but not a real "campus life" : one must be ready to feel a little lonely when entering EHESS

I am so fortunate to be here !
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The indepth involvement of the faculty, their out of the box inputs, encouragement and wealth of knowledge they so generously shared has been a very rewarding experience.

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

It was challenging in the beginning but now it seems like I can make it. I am learning stuff which really matters
