Sophia University-Pioneering International College Education

Sophia University has stood at the forefront of international education in Japan for over half a century.

An early step was taken in 1949 with the founding often International Division, which in 1974 became the Department of Comparative Culture, Japan’s first university-level program taught entirely in English and accredited by the Ministry of Education.

Widely known for its broad and rigorous curriculum, in 2003 the Faculty of Comparative Culture received a prestigious “Good Practice” award from the Ministry of Education and Science for pioneering modes of education suited to an increasingly global society.
