Timeless education for a changing world

The College of Arts and Sciences is the foundation of the liberal arts at the University of St. Thomas. From actuarial science to women’s studies, we develop free thinkers rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition at the intersection of faith, reason and action—the cornerstone of a St. Thomas education. The College of Arts and Sciences is the core of the intellectual and creative spirit that defines St. Thomas. 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.
