The following comments were added Sept. 21, 2015, online, at the request of the college:
Thomas Aquinas College is a four-year liberal arts college in southern California. We hold with confidence that the human mind is capable of knowing the truth about reality, that living according to the truth is necessary for happiness, and that truth is best comprehended through the harmonious work of faith and reason.
Unique among American colleges and universities, we offer a single academic program that replaces electives, majors and minors. Our comprehensive, fully integrated curriculum includes philosophy, theology, mathematics, laboratory science and the humanities, and it is rooted in the Western, Catholic intellectual tradition. The greatest books in that tradition, both ancient and modern (the Great Books), replace textbooks; rigorous discussions in small tutorials, seminars and laboratories replace lectures.
The college’s program is a thorough introduction to the arts of enquiry and reasoning and aims at providing students with a broad and integrated vision of the whole of life and learning.
Thomas Aquinas College also fosters a liturgical and sacramental life by which the moral and theological virtues may be nourished and by which students may more fully achieve their primary aim: making a good beginning on the road to wisdom.
