The University of Paris Ouest Nanterre-La Defense (UPOND formerly Paris 10) celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. It was founded in 1964, originally as an annex of La Sorbonne with a focus on the humanities and foreign languages. Today, it is the only university in the Paris region that has departments in all the human and social sciences. It was also the first to offer interdiciplinary programs such as a joint bachelor's degree (bi-licence) law- English or degrees in applied languages. With more than 34,000 students, including about 6,000 foreign and international students, it is one of the largest campuses in France.
