All bachelor degrees awarded by the University of St. Thomas shall meet the core curriculum requirements of the undergraduate program. The core curriculum is organized into nine curricular areas.

The importance of offering a well integrated undergraduate core curriculum flows from the commitment of St. Thomas as a Catholic university to the underlying unity of the human person: we are called to integrity in our personal, social, and spiritual lives. The unity of the person entails the interrelatedness of the various branches of knowledge, and we are guided in our search for such interrelations by the recognition that faith and reason are fundamentally compatible and complementary. Moreover, this vision of the human person brings into focus the communitarian dimension of the person, leading us to emphasize the ethical and social development of all students and to insist that knowledge should serve the common good. Finally, because this tradition calls upon us to recognize the dignity of the human person, the curriculum fosters both an appreciation for the life of the mind and an awareness of interdependence with others on local, national, and global levels.
