Sophia College (Autonomous) is a grant-in-aid institution, affiliated to University of Mumbai. Under Article 30(1) of the Constitution of India, the college is primarily for Christian minority students, but it admits everyone without discrimination, based on merit and other legal provisions.
From its inception in 1941, the mission of the college has always been commitment to women’s education, which is perceived to be the means for both personal and societal transformation. The vision is the upliftment of women through an education that is holistic and provides for an all-round growth. The College management is committed to creating an atmosphere in which the zest for learning thrives and students are trained not only academically but also to be women of convictions and values. All programmes are student-centred, providing ample opportunity for the development of leadership and self-assurance.
The college was first accredited by NAAC in 2003 with an ‘A’ grade with an overall institutional score of 88%. In 2009 it was reaccredited by NAAC and scored an ‘A’ grade with a CGPA of 3.61 on a scale of 4. In the 3rd cycle of accreditation, it was awarded an ‘A++’ grade with a CGPA of 3.70 on a four-point scale. The college was granted Autonomy on 18th July 2018.
Sophia College has an exciting future and is committed to excellence and integrity. The goals of the college are revised periodically, we keep pace with changing needs. Within the framework of the goals of the college, a unique feature of the institution is that a different theme is chosen each year. In line with the ever-dynamic spirit of our college and the determination to overcome the impact of the pandemic; the theme for the academic year 2022 -23 is RECOVER DISCOVER EMPOWER.
The College is fortunate in having a highly qualified and motivated teaching faculty, many of whom are actively engaged either in research work or in extension activities. The committed supporting staff is an additional enabling aspect of Sophia ethos.

The MISSION of the College from its very inception has been to provide women with higher education of an excellent quality together with opportunities for self-growth through an academic experience combining curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The VISION of the college is the empowerment of women through a holistic education which fosters independent thought and responsible action.
Our GOALS therefore are:
1. To enable each student to develop her full intellectual potential through a focussed academic experience that is simultaneously rich, extensive and collaborative.
2. To offer students scope for critical thinking and discernment, leading to the development of value-based convictions.
3. To help students develop a degree of self-reliance and determination to respond with courage and sensitivity to personal and social issues.
4. To generate among students an awareness of women’s issues, human rights and environmental issues, so that they understand and respond constructively to these.
5. To sensitize students to look at the world from the perspective of the less privileged and to respond with concern and in a humane manner.
6. In the context of globalization, to foster in students a sense of national identity that is secular and multicultural, with respect and tolerance of all cultures and religions.
7. To encourage Christian students to develop their religious convictions in an atmosphere of respect for other faiths and for each individual’s personal beliefs.”
