A Rewarding Future
The St. Thomas University experience is about high calibre academics, applying your learning to the real world, and finding a meaningful and rewarding career.
A benefit of studying liberal arts is that you earn a work-ready degree in a way that feels true to you. This ensures that your career will afford you the same personal satisfaction that your studies did.
“I bring up STU with as many people as I can. Five years and a cross-country move after graduating, I continue to apply the many lessons I learned at STU. It truly provided the foundation for all my future successes.”
Sam Titus, BA ’17, History and Political Science
Canada-US Relations at Global Affairs Canada
Preparing You to Love Your Career as Much as You Love Your Time at STU
When you graduate, your resume will be as diverse as your years at STU. The small university of big opportunities means access to many opportunities—academic and otherwise!
1. Academic opportunities typically reserved for graduate-level students, like research assistant positions, academic conferences, and scholarly publication.
2. Community involvement and volunteer days
3. Internships and relevant work experience
4. Conferences and leadership development
“STU gave me the chance to grow beyond what I could have ever imagined. I was better qualified to apply for opportunities thanks to the educational experience and my participation in the incredible internship program. At STU, you will develop a portfolio of skills that will make you a stand-out candidate to any employer.”
