About the Dougherty Family College

The Dougherty Family College is the newest college of the University of St. Thomas, opening in the fall of 2017 on the downtown Minneapolis campus.

Offering an associate degree in liberal arts, the college's curriculum will be rigorous and prepare graduates for the transition to public or private institutions should they decide to pursue a bachelor's degree. Students will receive mentoring from St. Thomas faculty, have the opportunity to participate in paid internships and enjoy the benefits of being part of the state's largest private university.

The college is named for Mike Dougherty and his family, who "want to give motivated, hard-working students the opportunity to succeed in college so they can use their talents and support themselves in the future."
