Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne is France's largest university for the humanities and social sciences, offering a wide range of excellent courses. Specialised in three main subject areas – economics and management; humanities and the arts; law and political science – the University offers a wide and innovative range of courses from bachelor's degrees to PhDs, including a number of highly reputed master's degrees and a comprehensive catalogue of continuing education courses.

Our three main subject areas

Law and political science

This subject area brings together the departments of law; public administration and public sectors; business law; international and European studies; political science, labour and social studies (AES and social law). The Sorbonne Law School provides the University's main legal training courses and research teams.

Arts and human sciences

The arts and humanities subject area includes the departments of history, geography, philosophy, art history, archaeology, plastic arts and art sciences. Some of the courses are unique and exclusive in France (e.g. aesthetics, restoration of works of art). In addition, the research centres attached to these departments have an international audience, and the preparatory courses for the agrégation and CAPES that they offer are among the most renowned in France.

Economics and Management Sciences

The Economics and Management Sciences subject area comprises three departments: economics; management and business economics; and mathematics and computer sciences. Together, they form France's largest centre of academic excellence, both in terms of the number of PhDs defended in the various disciplines on offer, and the many international partnerships forged in recent years.
