ST. THOMAS UNIVERSITY

St. Thomas University

Founded in 1910, St. Thomas University is Canada’s only exclusively liberal arts, undergraduate university. Located in Fredericton on Canada’s east coast, the university overlooks the beautiful St. John River Valley. Fredericton is a friendly college town (population 85,000) that is home to two universities. New Brunswick has three airports with daily flights connecting to international destinations.

Achieving excellence in undergraduate liberal arts education is St. Thomas’s highest institutional priority. Bachelor of Arts students can chose from more than 30 academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The Bachelor of Education program encourages cross-disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning.  The Bachelor of Social Work and the Mi’kmaq/Maliseet Bachelor of Social Work programs teaches students to address the needs of clients and to act as agents of change. A Master of Social Work program is launching in Fall 2021.

Small classes encourage students to participate in discussions with their peers and professors. Professors are distinguished scholars, authors and commentators and use a variety of teaching approaches – lectures, readings, discussions, group activities, debates, research assignments, writing, and on-line discussions.
