Introduction Summer Seminars Les "Estivales" Useful Information

Join the Sorbonne’s Summer University!

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities, located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, is famous for its academic prominence in the field of the humanities. In July, the Faculty opens its doors to visitors from all over the world and offers non-degree courses as part of its international Summer University.

The Faculty’s Summer University was created for people with various profiles and interests:

- University lecturers (students and professor-researchers) who wish to further their knowledge and engage in a debate touching on current research questions in the humanities.

- Visitors looking to enrich their stay in Paris.

The Faculty offers a large range of cutting-edge courses, adapted to each person’s needs. A certificate will be delivered to participants at the end of their stay.

This year, our offer has expanded thanks to our partnership with the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, the Museum d’Histoire Naturelle and the Université Technologique de Compiègne.
