Sophia University offers international students a wide-range of study options, including programs taught in English as well as Japanese. Every year we welcome more than 1000 international students who come to our university to pursue degree and short-term programs.
The university is located in the heart of Tokyo, in an area that is at the center of the Japanese political, business and cultural districts. The Imperial Palace, the Parliament, the State Guest House, the National Diet Library, and the offices of many multinational enterprises are all within easy walking distance of the university.
Many classes use the city of Tokyo as an extended classroom: students visit museums, companies, and factories and incorporate fieldwork in and around the city as part of course work.
At Sophia you can learn about Japan and Asia, master Japanese, English and many other languages, and complete graduate and undergraduate degrees in the humanities, social sciences, and science and technology that meet the highest international standards.
