Pantheon-Sorbonne University (Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne), also known as Paris 1, is a public research university in Paris, France. It was established in 1971 as one of the main inheritors of the historical University of Paris (La Sorbonne), after the division of the world’s second oldest academic institution. Following that tradition, it is one of the largest French universities and remains an important center of research and training in France.
The university’s focus is multidisciplinary, and has three main domains: Economic and Management Sciences, Human Sciences, and Legal and Political Sciences, comprising several subjects such as: Economics, Law, Philosophy, Geography, Humanities, Cinema, Plastic arts, Art history, Political science, Mathematics, Management, and Social sciences. Panthéon-Sorbonne University was founded on a wish for interdisciplinarity by bringing together disciplines. Indeed, most of the law professors of the faculty of law and economics of the University of Paris wished only to restructure their faculty into a university.
