Higher education with a higher calling
Educating morally responsible leaders who advance the common good.
With eight schools and colleges, St. Thomas offers a comprehensive university with undergraduate and graduate options for everyone. Our two-year college, Dougherty Family College, is for students who want to obtain a four-year college degree. They receive financial, academic and professional support on the way to their goals.
St. Thomas also offers non-credit classes, mini master's programs and additional courses through Continuing and Professional Education (CAPE) that will help you accelerate your career and gain new skills.
Inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, St. Thomas educates students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good.
