    School Overview

    St. Thomas University is a Miami-based institution of higher learning with a rich history of academic achievement centered on the belief that education is a path to enlightenment. Founded as Biscayne College in 1961, St. Thomas earned full university status in 1984. The school adopted the St. Thomas name at that time to honor the original Augustinian institution of higher learning where our founders taught and led.
