We've received numerous inquiries regarding our Masters in Spiritual Guidance and Master's in Women's Studies. These master degree programs are fully accredited but have been paused due to low enrollment. However, if we find there is increased interest, we can return these programs to the university offerings.
We are leaning toward a concentration program but with enough students, a full program could come back. 

Please click here to fill out the survey regarding your interest in these programs.

From September 9th-11th, the Sofia University Auditorium filled up with close to 200 guests each night to watch the performance of At the Playground - an  experimental theatrical play about "sexual desire" by PhD Student, Jiawei Liu. Audiences were moved to tears because of the dramatic and emotional scenes!

The studio re-examines what drama brings to people. By combining modern and contemporary cases with the study of the characters' psychological problems, Jiawei hopes to achieve drama with psychological overtones.
