NYU Paris students interested in taking courses at the University of Paris may enroll in one or more pre-selected courses offered by our partner universities, with approval of their NYU Paris advisor.
Courses are available in English within the Departments of Anglo-American Studies. These courses examine various aspects of literature, history, politics, and civilization of the English-speaking world.
Courses in French are available in French and Comparative Literature and Linguistics, History, Art History, Sociology, Studio Art, Cinema Studies, and Political Science. Students must either have taken or be currently enrolled in Written Contemporary French to take one of these courses.
NYU Paris has a formal student exchange arrangement with several universities within the University of Paris system: University of Paris I, III, VII, X as well as the Institut d'Études Politiques (Sciences Po). All NYU Paris students are required to be enrolled administratively in one of these universities in order to obtain their student visas. In addition, students will receive a university student card and access to direct enrollment in selected courses at the university.
Collège de la Sorbonne was founded in 1257 by the theologian and chaplain of Saint Louis, Robert de Sorbon, and is one of the oldest universities in Europe. In 1808 the Sorbonne expanded to become the University of Paris. In 1968, the University of Paris was divided into three independent entities with separate locations around Paris. Since that division, the system has grown to include 13 different university complexes throughout the city and beyond. The original Sorbonne, located in the Latin Quarter, has become a complex of buildings serving the needs of these universities.
