We’re the largest private university in Minnesota, with more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 110,000+ alumni. Eight schools and colleges offer 150+ undergraduate majors and minors and 55+ graduate degree programs. Our founding was inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, a 2,000-year-old practice of uniting faith and reason to explore the world. As a Catholic university, we develop future leaders of all faiths looking to make a positive impact on the world. And, we are the only academic institution in Minnesota to be designated a “Changemaker Campus,” meaning social innovation, entrepreneurship and caring for the common good are built into everything we do. Our three campuses in St. Paul, downtown Minneapolis and Rome, Italy, offer unique learning and living opportunities.
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. As a community, we are committed to our convictions: the pursuit of truth, academic excellence, faith and reason, dignity, diversity, personal attention and gratitude.
The University of St. Thomas is a Catholic comprehensive urban university that fosters a tradition of service to the public and inspires students to lead, work and serve with the skill and empathy that advances the common good.
Located in Minnesota's vibrant Twin Cities area, St. Thomas offers its students a wide range of academic opportunities, cultural events and volunteer activities. We are a campus connected to a larger community to meet the challenges of today's society.
Serving more than 10,500 undergraduate and graduate students, St. Thomas is the largest private college or university in Minnesota. We believe that education never stops, that real-world experience is essential and that your St. Thomas education should be both challenging and engaging.
