“I chose to come here as a student because I wanted this transformative, creative education that we offer.”

Founder, ITP/Sofia

“I brought various teachers – Zen teachers, Yoga teachers, Christian mystics I brought them on campus to talk to my psychology of religion class. I wanted to put all of this together in one school… I wanted to have a place where other people thought that education should include body mind and spirit.”


Barbara Hecker, J.D., Ph.D.

VP Academic Affairs, MSCS Program Chair

“You’ll get a lot of personal attention at Sofia University. We’re not a big school yet but we have a small school kind of feel with personal one on one attention so you definitely won’t be a number lost in the masses. You’ll also have a lot of nice mentoring from your faculty members.”

“This place is really special and unique and has a strong community, a strong spirit, and that there is so much creative energy here that I have never found in a school before. And I knew immediately that this is where I was supposed to be in order to do what I consider my life’s work.”

As a computer science student at Sofia university, this has been a very positive educational experience for me and I feel very happy that I am a part of it. Faculty really care about the students and the academics are excellent. This is one of the best schools in the Bay area.

Alumna, BALA

“I applied to the BAC at Sofia University as a means to an end: I wanted to (finally) complete my BA so that I could move on to graduate school. In the five terms I spent at Sofia completing my BA in Liberal Arts, I got so much more than I could have ever expected. The classes, professors, material and cohort of the program are excellent. I was challenged, inspired, supported and transformed. I made discoveries about myself that literally shifted the focus of not only my education, but my life. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to not only finish their undergrad, but also seeks to take their own transpersonal development to the next level.”
