U of St. Thomas Partners With Brisk –

The University of St. Thomas, based in Minnesota, has chosen Bisk Education’s University Alliance to assist the school in creating and delivering online degree and certificate programs.

The online programs will have the same comprehensive curriculum requirements as other University of St. Thomas programs, and online students will receive the same diplomas.

The University Alliance division has helped create online programs for many regionally accredited universities. Through the partnership, the University of St. Thomas plans to launch its very first online degree program, a Master of Arts in Public Safety and Law Enforcement Leadership in March 2013.

The University of St. Thomas currently offers students more than 90 undergraduate and 60 graduate degree programs. In addition to the master’s in public safety degree, the university plans to offer other online programs from its School of Social Work and Engineering and its Opus College of Business, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The University of St. Thomas is a private, Catholic university founded in 1885. The school is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
