Small classes, supportive professors and a beautiful campus in a small town- what a great place to be a university student.
As Canada’s only exclusive liberal arts school, STU specializes in humanities and social sciences. With small class sizes, excellent faculty, and a strong scholarship program, we offer a high quality education in a community-based environment. Our students participate in experiential learning opportunities—service learning, field work, internships, practicums, travel study, lab work; as well as partnerships with the Harvard Business School, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and American Moot Court Association—that allow them to apply their education in practical settings and develop professional contacts and skills needed to excel after graduation.
LEADERS IN LIBERAL ARTS
No other university in Canada specializes as exclusively in the liberal arts. The four-year Bachelor of Arts encompasses over 30 fields of study with numerous interdisciplinary options. STU is also recognized as a leader in the fields of International Relations, Economics, Human Rights, Criminology, Journalism, Social Work and Education.
Classes are small (average 31 students) and interactive with no class having more than 60 students. STU has attracted international students from more than 80 countries with a very strong scholarship programme that recognizes leadership and academic success.
HIGH ACHIEVING GRADUATES
For a small university of a few thousand students, STU’s community of alumni is impressive, including award winning authors, Rhodes Scholars, a federal court judge, prime ministers, a premiere, an Olympic athlete and the Speaker of the Senate of Canada. No matter where you’d like to go after STU, the support of the student community will always be there.
University residence accommodation is guaranteed for all international students and there are numerous work opportunities on and off campus.
