Broad preparation for a world of learning.
You’ll chart your own course in flexible, engaging programs that help you discover your unique talents and passion for learning. Students take a range of courses across the disciplines and choose a concentration that focuses your knowledge on a subject that fits your career and life goals.
Learn with other curious, motivated students.
“What I look forward to about continuing my education at Thomas is the many opportunities the school has to get involved and grow as a student, an athlete, and a leader.”
“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.”
“I am excited to be one of the first students in the Kiest-Morgan Scholars program. The program will allow me to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in management in three years, and with a master’s degree in four, saving me a full year of tuition, and getting me into the workforce a whole year earlier than many of my peers.”
