St. Thomas University

St. Thomas University

St. Thomas University is an undergraduate, liberal arts institution with a full-time enrolment of 1,900. Its students graduate with Bachelor of Arts, Applied Arts, Education, and Social Work degrees. The faculty members are distinguished teachers, researchers and scholars, and the university holds two Canada Research Chairs.

St. Thomas University originated in 1910, when Basilian Fathers assumed responsibility for St. Thomas College in Chatham, New Brunswick. The college began granting degrees in 1934, was renamed St. Thomas University in 1960, and relocated to Fredericton in 1964. St. Thomas now has 109 full-time faculty, and 12 buildings, several of which have earned architectural design awards and make the campus one of the most renowned in Canada.

Unique Approach to Education

St. Thomas is the only university in Canada wholly dedicated to the study of the liberal arts. A liberal arts education provides a broad base of knowledge and specialized skills that prepare students for a limitless list of careers or post-degree programs. Students gain a unique perspective from more than 30 academic disciplines as they choose from courses in the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, sciences, and interdisciplinary fields. According to the National Survey of Student Engagement (2014), STU students rate faculty significantly higher than do their Maritime or Canadian counterparts while 91% rate their first-year experience as excellent or good and 91% would attend STU again.
