“Who is God, how can we name Him?”
“What do I know, what can I know?”
“Is the soul mortal or immortal?”
The great thinkers throughout history have pondered fundamental questions such as these, yearning for answers, for truth. As Aristotle tells us in his Metaphysics, “All men by nature desire to know.” As humans, we delight in learning and possessing truth. Do you?
Students at Thomas Aquinas College embark upon a path to knowledge, contemplating and discussing the questions raised by the authors of the Great Books, seeking truth by way of classroom conversation.
At Thomas Aquinas College, there are no majors or minors, no textbooks or classroom lectures. Students carefully read straight from the greatest works of Western civilization, the texts that have shaped how we view the world today: Aristotle, Dante, St. Thomas Aquinas, Isaac Newton, John Locke, Jane Austen, Albert Einstein, among many others.
Rather than the ordinary approach of isolating technical knowledge into specialties, Thomas Aquinas College unifies the principal arts and sciences — philosophy, theology, mathematics, the natural sciences, history, literature, and music — into a single, integrated curriculum, culminating in a Bachelor of Arts degree in liberal arts.
Our academic program is not a mere survey of history or culture. The curriculum, founded in the Catholic intellectual tradition, aims at philosophical and religious wisdom.
If you are a self-motivated learner searching for an education that will last a lifetime, Thomas Aquinas College may be the place for you.
