PhD Schools ("Écoles doctorales")

PhD research is divided into 7 PhD schools (“Écoles doctorales”) which demonstrate the wide range of fields covered by the university:

  • Ancient and Medieval Worlds
  • Modern and Contemporary History
  • French and Comparative Literature
  • Civilizations, Culture, Literature and Society
  • Concepts and Languages
  • Art History and Archeology
  • The Paris Phd School for Geography ("École Doctorale de Géographie de Paris"): Space, Society, Regional Development

The PhD schools (“Écoles doctorales”) play an important part in the structure of interdisciplinary research which contributes to a renewed view of Humanities Studies. 

The university constantly aims at improving the technical means for research : Paris-Sorbonne has considerably increased its provision of electronic documentary resources, boasting more than 110 databases and nearly 3000 review titles.
