Sophia College, founded in 1940, is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. The Governing Body of the Society for the Higher Education of Women in India runs the College. The Religious Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and lay staff form the staff of the College.
The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded in France in 1800, by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. It is dedicated mainly to the all-round education of youth. There are now a number of schools and colleges of the Society all over the world, besides widespread innovative non-formal involvements. According to a long-standing tradition, the staff takes a personal interest in the harmonious growth of each student entrusted to their care.
Sophia College is a Christian Minority Institution. Students of all denominations are welcome. The main goal of Sophia is the relentless search for Wisdom, through an education that is holistic and trans formative.
A green oasis in the heart of a congested metropolis, the College has well-designed, airy buildings set around a beautiful central lawn, a terraced garden and a herbal garden. The main building, which is a heritage structure, has been enlarged over the years to accommodate lecture halls, library and an audio-visual room.
THE FACULTY OF ARTS is housed in the main building, as are the Principal's, Vice Principal's, Dean's administrative offices, the hostel, the shed (a multi-purpose hall) and the chapel. Junior College lectures are also held both in the main building and the extension wing.
THE FACULTY OF SCIENCE occupies a separate building, the BHABHA INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE, and is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories, a common instruments room, classrooms and a large auditorium. Junior College Science laboratories are also located in this building. The Sophia Centre for Women's Studies and Development, the Sophia J. N. Heredia Counselling Centre and a fully equipped Audio-Visual Hall are located in the SOPHIA ANDERSSON ANNEXE.
