Sophia University was established by Jesuits in 1913 as the first Catholic university in Japan. 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, cultivating “Men and Women for Others, with Others,” who can excel on the global stage. Sophia’s reputation for excellence in undergraduate education, outstanding graduate programs, and a competitive research environment enables it to maintain its ranking as one of Japan’s top private universities.
