About the School of Arts & Education

Welcome to the School of Arts and Education at St. Thomas University. Our programs span an array of disciplines, fostering our belief that leaders transform the world. The Institute for Communication, Entertainment and Media (ICEM), the Institute for Educational Studies and the Institute for Professional Studies provide exciting educational opportunities for innovative leaders to guide us into the future with a positive and visionary approach. We now offer many of our advanced degrees in education entirely online for students who live outside of South Florida and working professionals who need flexible class and study times.

Our philosophy is founded in the belief that “leadership is learned." Our faculty is dedicated to ensuring that students experience practical training as well as develop the critical thinking skills needed to excel as leaders. We prepare our students with the passion, dedication, ethics, and commitment with which we expect our graduates to leave St. Thomas University.
