Catholic Diocesan Universities in Florida


St. Thomas University Florida

St. Thomas University is the only Catholic Diocesan sponsored university in the state of Florida. We place a strong emphasis on academic excellence and stress the importance of service to others as a meaningful way to develop values that will enrich the world. Whether your interest lies in business, science, or the humanities, you will find at St. Thomas a comprehensive center of learning - technologically on the cutting edge, internationally connected with our curriculum, and a rich diversity that reflects the realities of our world.

Since 1961, St. Thomas University has been an integral part of the fabric of Miami, growing with the city, and contributing substantially to the economic, social, and cultural development of its people. Since it's founding in 1946 in Havana, Cuba by the Augustinians, St. Thomas has remained a u niversity solidly and richly grounded in the Catholic tradition, we are first and foremost values-oriented and student-focused. You will find that our commitment to offering a holistic, values-oriented approach to teaching and learning and to serving students' needs is constantly evident, inside and outside the classroom.

Quality education teaches you the essentials and then gives you plenty of room to experiment. Through academic programs grounded in the liberal arts, you will learn practical skills in the classroom- like how to think for yourself, solve problems analytically, write and speak effectively, and interact with people from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures.

You will have 26 dynamic undergraduate programs and 13 graduate program from which to choose- including nursing, education, sports administration, engineering, tourism and hospitality management, international business, and forensic science. We will help you select the major that fits your interests, abilities, and ambitions. You will be assigned an academic advisor who will help ensure you are always on the right track.

Our Academic Enhancement Center will prepare you for academic work at the college level and assist you in developing basic skills in writing, reading, mathematics, and English as a Second Language (ESL). You will have access to free individualized Counselling, tutoring, and placement-testing services. You can also participate in workshops on library usage, note-taking, and study strategies, and exam preparation.

Throughout campus you will feel a strong spiritual presence- even in the classroom. Because diversity extends to religious beliefs and because we are a Catholic institution, all students take classes in ethics, philosophy, and religion so they can develop an understanding and appreciation of all faiths.

Our prestigious US degree is highly selective and uniquely accepts a limited number of non-lawyers for cross-fertilization.


Now in its 8th year, this is the only online LLM program at an ABA accredited institution.

This is the only program concentrated in the robust job markets of Anti-Money Laundering, in Global Commerce, and in International Tax


Last year alone, our nearly 500 alumni and students received over 300 excellent job opportunities in these fields.


The LLM is flexible: can be completed in one year, up to four years.  Graduation requires 28 credits which translate into 8 substantive courses and Thesis courses.  By example, if you registered for 3 courses per 16-week trimester, you could graduate within the year.

Also, because our students are employed at the elite banks, firms, and multinationals, our program is geared to a real-business, case study approach, with each student integrating his/her study into the issues occurring at the workplace.  Nearly all our professors come from years of international business experience, have worked with the elite firms, and engage with the students in interactive online group and individual discussions, and give feedback upon the group and individual assignments.

Upon receiving your application, the founder and director, will welcome your personal interview to help you and us decide whether our innovative program fits your employment needs, and whether you will be one of the fifty chosen to pursue this unique opportunity.


The Walter H. and Dorothy B. Diamond Graduate Tax Program can broaden your horizons in many ways.   We also have a scholarship program for financial hardship students and for every qualified referral(s) that joins the program.
