Taking on the World’s Challenges through a Transdisciplinary and Transversal Approach
At Sophia University, research activities are based on our founding principles of internationalism and neighborliness, conducted in a multifaceted manner on domestic and international fields. Sophia University’s unique environment, in which all graduate schools and research institutes are concentrated on a single campus, allows for active collaboration among researchers and research institutes beyond the boundaries of their respective departments. The results of research not only contribute to the development of academia and society, but the latest findings are also integrated into educational activities. Sophia University researchers continue to work on a wide variety of research topics with an interdisciplinary and fusion approach, emphasizing this cycle.
