Founded in 1910, St. Thomas University is Canada’s only exclusively liberal arts, primarily undergraduate university. Fredericton, New Brunswick is a friendly college town (pop. 85,000) that is home to two universities. Achieving excellence in undergraduate liberal arts education is St. Thomas’s highest institutional priority. Professors are distinguished scholars, authors and commentators and use a variety of teaching approaches – lectures, readings, discussions, group activities, debates, research assignments, writing, and on-line discussions. Small classes encourage students to participate in discussions with their peers and professors. Bachelor of Arts students can choose from more than 30 academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The Bachelor of Education program encourages cross-disciplinary approaches to teaching and learning. The Bachelor of Social Work and the Mi’kmaq/Maliseet Bachelor of Social Work programs teaches students to address the needs of clients and to act as agents of change. A Master of Social Work program launched in Fall 2021. Faculty research has focal areas in narrative studies; global and international studies; Indigenous studies and Indigenous knowledge; health, wellness, and aging; social justice, human rights, and identities; environmental sustainability and climate change; arts and culture; and New Brunswick studies. The university holds Canada Research Chairs in global and transnational studies, and physical culture and social life, as well as a health research chair in community health and aging. An annual Student Research and Ideas Fair encourages student research, and many students are employed as research assistants. Distinguished alumni include authors David Adams Richards and Sheree Fitch, and former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
