Academic Planning

St. Thomas University – through its departments – offers four (4) year programs of study aimed at earning Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degrees and two-year programs aimed at earning Master’s degrees that represent excellence in the respective field of education.
The B.A. and B.Sc. are similar types of degrees with some differences. In general, in the B.A. about half of the courses are specific to the major, while the other half are general education requirements and electives. The B.S. is more specialized, with more than half of the courses specific to the major, leaving less room for electives. It is the student’s responsibility to fulfill the degree requirements of their academic program.
In-depth and rigorous master’s programs provide students with the skills needed to succeed in their chosen field, with greater specialization and projection toward interdisciplinary aspects. As students acquire a greater capacity for understanding and critical analysis of various topics, they will have adequate knowledge that, regardless of their chosen path, will enable them to perfect their education with third-level studies, such as the Ph.D.
In particular, the conduct of the Master’s Thesis (or Capstone Project) involves student participation in research projects coordinated by faculty members of the master’s degree program. Active participation in research projects will allow students to self-evaluate their propensity for advanced research activity and allow them to choose, with full knowledge, whether to continue their studies with a doctoral degree or to enter the world of work.
St. Thomas University selects highly qualified international faculty members who focus not only on the quality of courses and the educational preparation of the student body but also on each student’s interests.
