Join current Thomas More College students in their quest to be comprehensively educated in the history of the Catholic Church and Western civilization. You will see our seasoned and accomplished faculty in action, and will sit beside your future colleagues as they engage in the life of the mind.
At Thomas More College, we have a blend of lecture-based and seminar-style classes where students participate in discussion. The classroom–second only to the Chapel– is the center of life for the Thomas More community. It is a place where students and professors alike seek wisdom through the books and ideas that span the history of Western civilization.
Thomas More College defends a common education that allows students to study together, discover the beauty and order present in nature and human life, and to crown their studies contemplating the highest things. We believe that the Great Books approach that produced leaders over the last 3,000 years is more relevant than ever today. It is both a unique and rare opportunity to see this type of education at work.
Visit with Professors
Our accomplished professors would be happy to meet with you one-on-one after class or over lunch to discuss your interests. They are widely published and are leaders in their fields of study. Get to know our professors.
Daily Mass is offered in the Chapel at Thomas More, as well as daily confession, rosary, and the chanting of the Divine Office. The Extraordinary Form (Latin Mass) is available each week on our campus, as well as at nearby Saint Patrick’s Parish.
Spiritual retreats are regularly held at the Benedictine Monastery in Still River, MA. Opportunities abound for spiritual direction from the Benedictine monks and our campus chaplains.
