Academics

Welcome to St. Thomas University. As Provost of the University and Chief Academic Officer, my priority is to ensure that you succeed in your undergraduate, graduate or doctoral studies with the tools necessary to excel in the ever-changing professional arena. St. Thomas University offers a diverse learning environment and innovative programs taught by skilled and caring professors. Our institution recognizes the importance of addressing each learning environment as a specialized area. We offer the proper academic structure that can offer you an individualized academic learning environment geared towards fulfilling our motto of “developing leaders for life.”

Quality education teaches you the essentials through academic programs grounded in the liberal arts. You will learn practical skills in the classroom, solve problems analytically, learn to write and speak effectively, and interact with people from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures.  Because diversity extends to religious beliefs, as a Catholic institution, our students are exposed to topics in ethics, philosophy, and religion so they can develop an understanding and appreciation of all faiths.

Our Academic Enhancement Center prepares students for academic work at the college level and will assist you in developing basic skills in writing, reading, mathematics, and English as a Second Language (ESL). We offer access to free individualized counseling, tutoring, and placement-testing services. You can also participate in workshops on library usage, note-taking, and study strategies, and exam preparation.

I invite you to take a tour of the programs and learn what St. Thomas University has to offer in your specific area of interest--dynamic undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs from which to choose--including nursing, education, communication arts and media, sports administration, management and accounting, engineering, tourism and hospitality management, international business, and forensic science.

Come visit our exciting campus and learn first hand the many opportunities that await you!

Sincerely yours,  


Gregory S. Chan, Ed. D.
