- Pantheon-Sorbonne University
Pantheon-Sorbonne University , 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. Pantheon-Sorbonne’s headquarters is located on the Place du Panthéon in the Latin Quarter, an area in the 5th and the 6th arrondissements of Paris. The university occupies part of the Sorbonne and over 25 buildings in Paris, such as the Centre Pierre Mendès France, the Maison des Sciences Économiques. It is now a founding member of the alliance called Hautes Études-Sorbonne-Arts et Métiers.
Its 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.

After the student protests of May and June 1968, thirteen universities succeeded to the University of Paris (Sorbonne University), which ceased to exist.
While Paris-Sorbonne University succedeed only the faculty of humanities of Sorbonne University, Panthéon-Assas University only the faculty of law and economics and Pierre and Marie Curie University only the faculty of 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. However, most of the faculty’s economists and political scientists and some public law professors sought to create a university which would extend beyond the disciplinary compartmentalisation; they hurried ahead of their colleagues and established Paris I—which would later be called “Panthéon-Sorbonne”—with professors of humanities. The name of the university show this interdisciplinarity: theSorbonne building is the traditional seat of the Humanities studies in Paris (hence it is also used by Paris III and University Paris-Sorbonne), and the Panthéon building is, with the Assas building, the traditional seat of the law studies (hence it is also used by Panthéon-Assas University).
