Get MORE Out of Your University Experience
St. Thomas More College (STM) has been helping U of S students discover more since 1936. With our tradition of excellence in teaching and research and our commitment to holistic education, STM can enhance your university experience. Take advantage of our welcoming community, diverse courses and student services while you discover your place in the world and continue on the path to success.
STM is a Catholic college, federated with the U of S, that is open to students of all backgrounds. We are a welcoming community and we appreciate diversity in our student population. We value learning that is connected to real world experience and hope to educate leaders that will, in turn, build a more just and sustainable society. For those who so desire, we offer opportunities for exploring one’s faith, and spiritual growth. Most of all, STM is a place to call home on the wider campus, a place where dedicated faculty and staff put the needs of the whole student first.
Get the Best of Both Worlds
U of S students can take STM classes. Students in the College of Arts & Science also have the option of self-identifying as an STM student. That is how you officially become an STM student. By doing this, you get access to more student services, more scholarships and bursaries, and it doesn't cost you anything. Self-identifying as an STM student does not restrict your class selection or program choice. STM students are still U of S students and they work toward U of S degrees. STM students really do get the best of both worlds!

Catholic Studies is intended to provide students with an understanding of Catholicism and its history, artistic and literary culture, philosophical and theological thought, and role in contemporary society.
This minor is an interdisciplinary study of Ukrainian culture, language, history, religion and politics from historical and cross-cultural perspectives. The Ukrainian studies Minor will provide students with the opportunity, on one end, to engage in the multidisciplinary nature of Ukrainian studies, on the other end, students will be able to pursue the study of one or more aspects of Ukrainian culture which are of relevance to their personal interests, field of study, and future career.
Critical Perspectives on Social Justice & the Common Good
This Minor is an interdisciplinary program using the collected insights of various academic disciplines designed to prepare students to be responsible critics of contemporary societies and effective agents for positive social transformation. Students will reflect on the causes and structures of injustice and approaches to social change at interpersonal, communal, national and global levels.
As a central concept in Catholic thought on social justice, the Minor will explore the role of the "common good" in the religious, ethical, philosophical and social science traditions. Through a community service-learning framework, this minor creatively engages faculty, students, and community partners in local and international responses to inequality and marginalization.
