Based on our initiative for the Top Global University Project, Sophia University is currently developing the "Sophia Program for Sustainable Futures (SPSF)," a new English-based undergraduate program. The SPSF is collaborated by six departments, Journalism, Education, Sociology, Economics, Management, Global Studies.  One of our strengths is that all of our faculties concentrate on one campus in central Tokyo. Taking advantage of that integrated framework, SPSF will offer discipline-based classes in which students can enhance their knowledge in their respective fields of study and interdisciplinary courses provided with the relevant departments' cooperation. Cross-listed discipline-based courses will also be open to students who wish to take courses in six different departments related to their own curricula. Utilizing these classes, the SPSF program will focus on helping students learn perspectives and modes of thinking in both their own areas and different areas in hopes of nurturing a sensitivity to diversity.

About University

Sophia University (“Jochi Daigaku” in Japanese) was founded in 1913 by the Jesuits, a Catholic order renowned for excellence in education. From the beginning, the university founders stressed an internationally oriented curriculum and rigorous training in foreign languages. Sophia soon established itself as a leading institution for scholarship on foreign languages and literature in Japan. Today Sophia University is a major teaching and research university in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences with 13,800 students and teaching staff of 1,400 members, embracing over 1,500 international students studying on one campus from 85 countries. This approach yields significant benefits for the University’s programs by deepening educational mobility, collaboration, and specialization. Students can study business and economics, science and technology, and environmental studies, all strengths of Japan, in English as well as Japanese studies that Sophia boasts a long tradition. Variety of disciplines are available in English while the main language of instruction is Japanese (please see “undergraduate” and “graduate” for the medium language of instruction).

Sophia University has been selected as one of 37 universities to receive funding from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for internationalization effort called the "Top Global University Project."
