Sophia University Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies, Dean

Since 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, we have come a long way growing in environmental awareness backed by science that environmental concerns are no more secondary to economic development. We are now ready to embark on a universal post-2015 sustainable development agenda with a post Kyoto Protocol agenda to live in harmony with our planet. Sophia Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies was established to meet the professional need.

Our graduate program was designed with the special aim to provide the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills required to meet the challenges of today’s global issues. We have entered our tenth year and we take pride in the fact that our graduates are making a difference in the future world we want as skilled professionals.
