This two-year college within the University of St. Thomas opened in the fall of 2017 at the downtown Minneapolis campus. It offers an associate degree, but its rigorous curriculum is especially designed for students who ultimately aspire to a four-year college degree. As a student here, you’ll be mentored by St. Thomas faculty and participate in internships. And, you’ll enjoy the benefits of being part of the state’s largest private university.

The college is named for Mike Dougherty and his family, who “want to give motivated, hardworking students the opportunity to succeed in college so they can use their talents and support themselves in the future.”
