Every year, the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle welcomes students, young researchers, and French and international professionals to the Doctoral School “Sciences de la nature et de l’Homme : Évolution et Écologie” (Natural and Human Sciences: Evolution and Ecology), and to the Master’s degree programme “Biodiversité, Écologie et Évolution” (Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution). The Muséum also contributes to teaching Bachelor level courses in partnership with several French establishments.

The range of training on offer at the Muséum is backed up by its scientific projects, whose contents are reflected and developments followed. This is based on the Muséum’s research, exceptional collections, sites, and on the diversity of professions that work here. The rich variety in the programme on offer is the result of the key role played by dialogue between the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, and of the diversity of audiences: from school pupils to doctoral students, through to professionals and teachers taking in-service training.
