The Renaissance Program is an interdisciplinary minor which provides students the opportunity to combine the distinct learning experiences of a concentration in a liberal or non-business related field with exposure to career-related studies and significant work experience. It is designed for students majoring in the liberal arts who want preparation for their career search.
Students who minor in the Renaissance Program elect a major field of study from any of the liberal arts disciplines – that is, from the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and the like. Students who major in any of the Business fields or in Health and Human Performance are not eligible for the program.
As part of its commitment to Renaissance Program students, the University of St. Thomas extends to graduates of the program the opportunity to take undergraduate business courses tuition-free, on a space-available basis. There is no limit on the number of such courses the student may take. Students may take these courses either for credit or as audits, but may not use the courses toward a major or minor in business.
