The heart of the University of St. Thomas.

The College of Arts and Sciences houses 23 academic departments and interdisciplinary programs. We give life to our liberal arts mission through a broad range of majors and minors and, importantly, through the core curriculum: a cohesive set of courses designed to provide a liberal arts foundation for all St. Thomas students. From student-faculty research, to creative performances, to internships, and to seminar discussions, our programs are rooted in active learning initiatives.
