St. Thomas Aquinas College is a vibrant, independent, four-year liberal arts college located in the NYC Metropolitan area, just 15 miles North of Manhattan, giving students quick access to learning, cultural, internship, and career opportunities in one of the world’s most exciting cities.  

The college's 72-acre campus provides a safe, welcoming place for students to study at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  We offer more than 100 majors, minors, and specializations in the School of Arts and Social Sciences, the School of Business, and the School of Education.  Students can major in Marketing or Criminal Justice and minor in Performing Arts, Economics, or Management, as an example.  STAC, as we are known, also provides students with the opportunity to participate in college athletics at the Division II, varsity, club, or intramural level.  

We strive to help our students prepare themselves for a world that will be different -- five, ten and fifteen years after graduation. The liberal arts base simply provides them with life skills and students choose a major and minor that points them in a specific direction.
