Japan’s Pioneer in  Global Education

Sophia University led the move to internationalization in Japan, providing study and educational opportunities that take our increasingly complex world into account.
Over the years, the university has created an original global network that allows researchers and students from overseas to teach and study in Japan, and Japanese researchers and students to do the same abroad.
Sophia provides an excellent educational environment for the era of internationalization, cultivating “for Others, with Others” who can excel on the global stage.
