Expanding Interdisciplinarity

The strength and impact of Sorbonne University lies in the effective sharing of knowledge, by breaking down barriers between the disciplines, and the intersection of different areas of expertise. Our institution plays host to multidisciplinary chairs of excellence and transversal programs dedicated to research and education. We are a source of discoveries.

Expanding Interdisciplinarity

Stretching Limits of Knowledge by Creating Chairs of Excellence

A chair is a tailor-made project, developed in partnership with a sponsor, to meet their expectations and their needs. It might be a specific field of research, or the creation or spread of knowledge in a relevant sector of the humanities, sciences or medicine, or an area that cuts across disciplines.
A chair makes it possible to fund a team that’s already in place or to host internationally renowned professor-researchers for a specific period of time.
Each chair of excellence is subject to the governance of a steering committee that defines its strategic orientation and supervises its activities.
The creation of a chair requires a minimum investment of €1.5-2 million, depending on the work called for, the means necessary and the profile of its recipient. It can be funded by either one or several donors.

Health Sciences

The Faculty of Health Sciences teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site includes a midwifery school.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
