The MA and PhD in Global Studies, and MA in International Cooperation Studies can be conferred through coursework entirely in English. Established in April 2006, the school offers four programs: International Relations, Area Studies, Global Studies and International Cooperation studies. The school applies an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the study of global issues, such as ethnicity, food supplies, population, environment, immigration, and the advancement of information technology, in order to deepen the understanding and find solutions. The school seeks to train scholars and specialists capable of working effectively in academia, research and other institutions that tackle global issues. At Sophia University, we train people who will open up the world by drawing out the potential of each individual through genuine “wisdom” that lies beyond knowledge.
