The graduate students in our Master’s Program are required to attain 30 credits (1 course normally equals to 2 credits). The courses are not limited to those offered by the faculty members of Sophia, but may also be offered by invited lecturers from other universities and institutions, some of which are given in English. All courses are conducted with a small group of students, enabling them to interact actively among themselves and with the instructors. Students can also acquire credits from other Master’s programs in the Graduate School of Human Sciences, such as those in the Graduate School of Sociology or Psychology. In addition, students can acquire up to 8 credits from other graduate schools outside the Graduate School of Human Sciences at Sophia University upon the approval of their advisors. In some cases, students are allowed to transfer credits up to 10 credits obtained from foreign higher education institutions. These systems enable students to fulfill their various needs.
The Master’s Program in Education at Sophia University aims to contribute to human resources development in the globalizing era. Beginning in 2016, students can attend a course (for example, about poverty and environmental issues) offered by the United Nations University. Students can also benefit from the Sophia’s study abroad program for further improving their language skills, intercultural experience and/or collection of research data. Moreover, in order to offer diverse learning opportunities, we occasionally invite professors from foreign universities; in spring 2016, we host a lecturer who specializes in intercultural education and peace education from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
