Founded in 1885, the University of St. Thomas is a Catholic university based in the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. The largest private university in Minnesota, St. Thomas offers bachelor's degrees in over 85 major fields of study and more than 45 graduate degree programs including master's, education specialist, juris doctor and doctorates.
The University of St. Thomas, a Catholic comprehensive urban university, is known nationally for academic excellence that prepares students for the complexities of the contemporary world. Through disciplinary and interdisciplinary inquiry and deep intercultural understanding, we inspire students to lead, work and serve with the skill and empathy vital to creating a better world.
The St. Thomas Career Development Center prepares students for life after college by providing on-campus interviews, job fairs, internships and job postings. That’s why 94 percent of 2014 graduates were gainfully employed, enrolled in graduate school, working as volunteers or enlisted in the military within six months of graduation.
The 78-acre St. Paul campus consists of the original 45-acre campus, five acres of adjacent properties and 28 acres of the Saint Paul Seminary campus that was transferred in a 1987 affiliation between St. Thomas and the seminary.
The main campus, built on a farm site once considered "far removed from town," is located where St. Paul's stately Summit Avenue meets the Mississippi River. The site was farmed by ex-Fort Snelling soldier William Finn, who received the property as a pension settlement after he accidentally shot himself in the hand while on guard duty.
The University of St. Thomas has been approved for the Open Pathway for Reaffirmation of Accreditation. The two components of the Open Pathway are the Assurance Review and the Quality Initiative. The University of St. Thomas timeline includes an Assurance Review in 2017-18 and a Comprehensive Evaluation (including a site visit) in 2023-24.
