Master in Asian Studies



Oriented towards research in the field of human and social sciences, this new Master’s degree in collaboration with the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), the French School of Asian Studies (EFEO), the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (EPHE), as well as the Université PSL offers integrated training where each identified cultural area is addressed through a methodology specific to each discipline. The new Asian Studies MA educational team encourages students to expand their reflection beyond a single cultural or linguistic area and to embrace a multidisciplinary and comparative approach to their subject of study. The Master’s degree is a multidisciplinary two-year program, now organized around two tracks of study:


Track 1: “History and social sciences: fields, texts and images” (EHESS-EFEO)

This emphasis, proposed by the EHESS in collaboration with the EFEO, is intended for students wishing to develop their research in connection with modern and contemporary Asia. In a cross-fertilization of fundamental disciplines and cultural areas, where they are approached through a specific method, this track emphasizes multiple societal challenges based on global and resolutely comparative approaches, which highlight circulations and transfers, as well as dialogue and interdisciplinarity in the social sciences.

Track 2: “History, philology and religions” (EPHE-EFEO)


This emphasis, developed by the EPHE in collaboration with the EFEO, is meant for students wishing to carry out research on ancient Asia based on a thorough understanding of written or material sources, and based on methods specific to philology, paleography, archaeology and epigraphy. Particular emphasis is placed on the analysis of first-hand sources generally written in different Asian languages. Another specificity of this course is the interest given to the study of religious phenomena through a long durée approach.
