|School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):|
Thomas More College gives you a comprehensive education that provides a solid understanding of Western civilization, its greatest thinkers, and its most enduring books. After four years, you will be able to quote Plato and Aristotle at will, compare modern economic conditions with ancient Greek tragedies, rattle off the great theological debates of Christianity, and quote the literary works of Faulkner and Homer.
We offer a Catholic environment with daily Mass and a vibrant community life. As a student here, you will spend three full months studying in the heart of Rome, staying at a majestic villa by night and taking private tours of the Eternal City by day. You can also travel to Oxford, England, to study in the private library of G.K. Chesterton, or take advantage of several internship opportunities at prestigious locations like the United Nations in New York City and prominent think-tanks in Washington, D.C.
And if the cost of college is worrying to you, then our low tuition rates--which rival even in-state tuition costs-might surprise you. We may even be able to offer you merit and need-based scholarships if you demosntrate a strong desire to learn.
Thomas More College is located in an idyllic setting within an hour of culture events in Boston, skiing in the White Mountains, or biking on the seacoast. Few students are afforded such a wide range of nearby activities and attractions.
