Sofia University is a private, WSCUC-accredited institution, which is formerly known as the Transpersonal Psychology Institute (TPI) and was established in 1975. Historically, the academic focus of the university is on offering graduate programs in transpersonal psychology. Transpersonal psychology is characterized as a scientific research of human experience which includes, on the one hand, trauma pain and disorder, as well as high levels of imagination, instinct and peak functioning. Since then, the University also expanded its course options to include individuals in all different degrees and programs including a Business Degree.
The graduate program originally developed in the area of mental, psychological, religious, physical, social and creational aspects of life by the creators and president Emeritus Robert frager. All on-campus participants have been trained Aikido, a Japanese martial art, for further personal development. While Aikido is not actually a mandatory part of the curriculum, the University offers students and teachers many chances to study and to develop in their own ways.
With the way people live, particularly technology’s position in daily life, the environment around us, throughout the world and within California, Sofia University aims at putting its unique perspective through contemporary challenges. Sofia continues to offer programs based on transpersonal theory, which concentrate on universal human experience (through clinical psychology, therapy, Tran’s personal psychology courses), while also developing new initiatives that align personal well-being, human growth and societal change with emerging trends in business and informatics.
Sofia is full of opportunities for engaging in the world, building friendships with like-minded passionate people, creating communities of special interest, and meeting in various ways. Sofia Students are qualified, skilled, medical, law and theological sciences from a wide range of backgrounds, who have come to a point in their life when they want to improve their personal development, their professional careers, and their family.
The heterogeneity of our participants, staff, and professors at Sofia University is emphasized, encouraged and appreciated. Our society has a strong commitment to the creation and maintenance of a culture in which all the community members are valued and respected irrespective of race, nationality, sexual orientation, identification of origin, socioeconomic status, religion, age, physical ability, disability or political orientation.
There is also a group here in Sofia which raises awareness and promotes diversity. The CDD is a multi-constituency consultative and aid group including graduates, staff and faculty that work on inclusion and equality. The CODE Group is dedicated to mobilizing Sofia’s population (staff, teachers, students, and trustees) to create a culture that supports all Sofia’s diversities and promotes equality within every sub-community and across the entire community–especially in relation to those diversities. The team sponsors events and talks with the administration on issues related to diversity.
