Les facultés de Sorbonne Université

Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Giving students the tools to understand today's world and anticipate those of tomorrow: these are the challenges taken up by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, which brings together the arts, languages, humanities and social sciences.

Faculty of Arts and Humanities

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Sorbonne University is today the most complete and the largest in France, in the field of arts, languages, letters, human and social sciences. Committed to conveying a humanist culture, its pedagogical excellence is based on the recognised quality of its research to offer the most complete and innovative teaching.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities has a very strong international reputation and enables its students to enrich their education by opening up to the world through academic and research collaborations with renowned universities in Europe and the rest of the world. As with all Sorbonne University courses, the internationalisation of courses is our priority.

A diverse range of courses:

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities  specialises in numerous areas: classical and modern literature, languages, foreign literature and civilisations, linguistics, philosophy, sociology, history, geography, history of art and archaeology, and musicology. The faculty also has two in-house schools: the CELSA specialised in information and communication sciences, and INSPÉ (Institut national supérieur du professorat et de l'éducation), and Institute in educational sciences and teacher training.

Pedagogical innovation:

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities wants its students to benefit from an education that uses pedagogical innovations in a way that is adapted to each discipline. Teaching renews knowledge to ensure a better understanding of contemporary issues, with the priority being given to career guidance for graduates to integrate the workforce. Pathways are diversified and enriched to meet the needs of all students, whether they wish to go into teaching, research or civil service, or prefer to move into the business world, which is now fully integrated into the design of the courses and students' career opportunities. The potential of Sorbonne University makes it possible to offer bachelor's degrees that combine related or complementary disciplines (major/minor programs and double bachelor's degrees), as well as double master's degrees or multidisciplinary master's degrees.

Connected to research:

Connecting all courses to research is a fundamental principle of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The best academic researchers are involved from the first year of the Bachelor's degree and accompany students throughout their education. Their teaching of humanities and social sciences includes critical aspects that form well-developed minds, ready to start a professional life that is open to intellectual adaptation.

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).

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.
