Providing timeless education for a changing world, the College of Arts and Sciences is the foundation of the liberal arts. We develop free thinkers grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition, at the nexus of faith, reason, and action, which is the cornerstone of a St. Thomas education. From psychology to physics, mathematics to music, the College of Arts and Sciences is the core of the intellectual and creative spirit that defines St. Thomas. With 37 academic departments, interdisciplinary and graduate programs, our students learn to think creatively and critically across disciplines through a variety of innovative instructional methods, interdisciplinary teaching and collaborative research. Graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences emerge as reflective individuals, responsible citizens and thoughtful professionals who are committed to the common good.
