We Set You Up for Success
The liberal arts courses you take during your two years at the Dougherty Family College will transition you into a college environment and set you up for success in both a four-year college program and your career.
Course topics include:
- Literature, writing and communication
- Natural and physical sciences
- Math and quantitative literacy
- History and social science
- Faith, social responsibility and human diversity
- Fine arts
As you pursue your associate degree at the Dougherty Family College, you’ll take courses with your cohort, a group of about 25 students who will become your support system and your community throughout the two-year program.
Your coursework in the fall will include a seminar called the First-Year Experience, which will help you integrate into the life and culture of the University of St. Thomas. You’ll develop the tools to become a responsible leader who thinks, acts and works for the common good.
