About St. Thomas University

St. Thomas University was founded in 1961 as Biscayne College by the order of the Augustinian Friars. In 1988, the University came under the sponsorship of the Archdiocese of Miami, conferring upon St. Thomas the distinction of being the only Catholic Archdiocesan-sponsored university in the state of Florida. Now with students from 80 countries and 41 states represented, and more than 75 degree programs and a growing online presence, St. Thomas University is renowned for its leadership development in justice, science, business and ministry.
