St. Thomas Aquinas College maintains an Academic Affiliation with the following institutions:
New York University - Silver School of Social Work
In addition to the main campus in New York City, New York University maintains its Masters of Social Work (M.S.W.) program on our campus as a satellite campus of the University. Graduate students can complete their entire course of studies at St. Thomas Aquinas College.
Recently, St. Thomas Aquinas College and NYU have announced an "accelerated" track for undergraduate students entering the MSW program. Under this arrangement, current STAC students would be admitted to graduate studies during their senior year (or earlier in some cases), complete a full academic load in the Fall of senior year and immediately transitioning to full-time studies with NYU during the Spring of senior year. Students would then enter graduate studies during the summer following their graduation from STAC, thereby allowing them to complete the MSW in approximately 12-16 months after the Bachelors degree.
St. Thomas Aquinas psychology majors who do well in their course of studies, who meet NYU's admission requirements, and who are recommended to NYU by the Psychology Faculty have favorable admission status. A number of graduating seniors over the past several years have been admitted to the program and performed well in their graduate studies. St. Thomas Aquinas students, therefore, have an excellent reputation for successful achievement within this program.
Pace University offers three Masters Degrees - General Psychology, Grief and Loss Counseling, and Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counseling.
High-achieving St. Thomas Aquinas psychology majors (3.0 GPA or better) may apply for admission to the graduate program prior to the completion of their Bachelors degree. If recommended by the Faculty to Pace University and upon successful admission by the appropriate Graduate Admissions Office, students would complete three (3) years of study full-time at STAC. During the fourth year, students will spend half-time at STAC and half-time at Pace. At the completion of the fourth year, students are awarded the Bachelors degree in psychology. Students then transition to full-time studies at Pace and, at the end of their fifth year, are awarded the Masters degree by the graduate institution.
