Learn about literature and creative writing.
Whether you love books or love to write, this major will prepare you for immersion into the worlds of reading, writing, thinking, and discussing ideas. You’ll develop your talent as a writer, do original research and learn from the existing canon of critical theory, study film and media, and learn by teaching others and presenting your ideas.
Small classes, close community.

“As an involved student here at Thomas College, I find that I am able to be successful in many areas. There are small classes with engaged professors where it is easy to make connections that will last a life time. As a Resident Assistant I am also able to meet a variety of peers and experience many different cultures. The Thomas Community allows students to thrive through personal connections and faculty support that will benefit all students in their future careers.”

“ When I was in high school I didn’t really connect with my teachers and everything was taught out of a book with no connection to real life. I came to Thomas and have the honor of being taught by the perfect examples of realistic professors in Criminal Justice. My professors talk from experience more than they do from the book. There is no better way of learning than learning through your own experiences along with others experiences.”

“I couldn’t think of another school that will support me on my way to pursuing my Political Science degree than Thomas College. I think I am very lucky to have surrounded by professors with first-hand experience on my major. The professors are so passionate in what they do and very eager to do whatever they can to support you while at Thomas. I think Thomas College is a middle man for the real world.”
