The University of St. Thomas is the largest private university in Minnesota, with 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students and over 110,000 alumni. Eight schools and colleges offer over 150 undergraduate majors and minors and over 55 graduate degree programs.
The University’s founding in 1885 was inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, a 2,000-year-old practice of uniting faith and reason to explore the world. As a Catholic university, we develop future leaders of all faiths looking to make a positive impact on the world. St. Thomas is the only academic institution in Minnesota to be designated an AshokaU “Changemaker Campus,” meaning social innovation, entrepreneurship, and caring for the common good are built into everything we do. The University’s three campuses in St. Paul, downtown Minneapolis and Rome, Italy, offer unique learning and living opportunities.
