The Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne is one of the 13 successor institutions of the University of Paris , the Sorbonne, which was split up in 1970 . Its main administrative building is in the middle of the Latin Quarter , but it also has locations in several other arrondissements as well as Egypt and Turkey. The college was founded in 1971 by part of the professors of the Faculty of Linguistics and Humanities and the Faculty of Law and Economics of the former University of Paris.

The college is named after the Sorbonne university building , which it shares with several other universities, as well as the Panthéon , in the immediate vicinity of which the building of the former law faculty of the University of Paris, designed in the late 18th century by Jacques-Germain Soufflot , is located. The University of Panthéon-Sorbonne shares this building with the University of Panthéon-Assas, which was also built in 1970 . In the course of the split up of the University of Paris, some legal scholars decided to become part of the new interdisciplinary Panthéon-Sorbonne, while 88 of the 108 legal scholars founded the University of Panthéon-Assas as a primarily legal university.

Paris I is divided into 14 faculties ( UFR ), 4 institutes; The university also has a distance learning center, a training center and a university publishing house.

With 42,000 students (including 8,000 foreign students) it is the largest university offering humanities courses in France.

Paris I was a founding member of heSam Université ; however, she resigned from this community on November 16, 2016.

Establishment of the university

As a result of the events of May 1968 , the University of Paris was divided into 7 new universities.

Following the instigation of Professors François Luchaire (Public Law), Henri Bartoli (Economics) and Hélène Ahrweiler (Humanities), the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne was established as a merger of the Faculty of Law, Economics (Panthéon) and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Sorbonne ) founded.

Since Paris I was founded, the number of students has grown by more than 50%, while the proportion of doctoral students has also risen constantly. This growth, accompanied by the development of new disciplines such as economic and social management, applied mathematics and social sciences, made it necessary to allocate new premises, which helped the expansion of the university: the Saint-Charles Center for Fine Arts (1973), the Center Tolbiac (now Center Pierre-Mendès-France (1973)), the Center de Recherches historiques et juridiques de la rue Mahler (1972), the Center René-Cassin for the Bachelor in Law (1990), the Maison des sciences économiques ( 1998) for research in economics and the Center Broca (2001).
