St Thomas More College
St. Thomas More College is the only Federated College at the University of Saskatchewan. The College was established by the Basilian Fathers in 1936, on the invitation of the President of the University of Saskatchewan to the Catholic Bishop of Saskatoon. The Basilian Fathers, a religious congregation with headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, who pioneered the operation of Catholic colleges associated with non-denominational universities throughout Canada, were invited to institute and operate the College. The College was incorporated by an Act of the Legislature of Saskatchewan in 1943, following formal approval by the Senate and Board of Governors of the University. The Act was amended in 1972 and 2001. The College is administratively and financially autonomous from the University. It receives direct provincial grants and is accountable to the Provincial Government.
St. Thomas More is academically integrated within the University of Saskatchewan and shares in the University’s mandate and mission of post-secondary education. The College’s students receive University of Saskatchewan degrees as STM does not grant degrees. The College cooperates with the College of Arts & Science in preparing students for all B.A. and B.Sc. degrees, as well as the B.F.A. and B.Mus. degrees. Students in the College of Arts & Science may enroll through St. Thomas More College. Admission requirements are the same for both STM and the College of Arts & Science. The fees are also the same, and are paid to the University. Students in non-direct entry programs (for architecture, dentistry, law, medicine, nutrition and dietetics, pharmacy, optometry, physical therapy, social work, theology, or veterinary medicine) and part-time students may also enroll in STM. Enrolment in STM does not restrict choice of program or courses and students may enroll even if none of their classes in a given year are taught by the College. The College provides opportunities to explore and to live Christian values but imposes no obligation in this area.
The College faculty are members of the faculty of the College of Arts & Science and of University Council. Faculty appointments and promotion require the approval of the University to ensure that St. Thomas More classes are equivalent in standards to other university classes.
The College at present offers classes in these departments of Arts & Science: Archaeology, Economics, English, Languages & Linguistics, History, Philosophy, Political Studies, Psychology, Religious Studies and Anthropology, and Sociology. These have the same number as those offered by the corresponding department of the College of Arts & Science.
