Education booklet 2014-2015
The musée du quai Branly welcomes teaching connected with its collections or corresponding to the scientific themes defined by the Department of Research and Education: western and non-western arts, material and intangible heritage, museum institutions and their collections, and relationships between technology and material culture. The musée du quai Branly is not approved to award national diplomas and does not take the place of universities or specialised schools.
Intended for masters' and doctoral students, and exceptionally for those in the final year of a degree, this teaching is provided in the context of an agreement signed between the musée du quai Branly and the partner establishment. The teaching provided at the museum with its partner establishments takes the form of specialised seminars, study days or conferences in the fields of anthropology, ethnomusicology, art history, history, archaeology, sociology, oral literature and heritage law.
The policy of the musée du quai Branly is to welcome teaching provided by partner establishments, but also to promote cross-cutting exchanges between establishments and disciplines by means of a mutualisation of teaching. The museum also offers educational sessions concerning its collections, which are presented by the conservators. These sessions are normally open to the general public, subject to the approval of the lecturer.
