Thomas MoreCollege of Liberal Arts is dedicated to classical educationin the Roman Catholic intellectual tradition. Throughout the course of its four-year curriculum, students engage the seminal ideas of Western thought. The college is located in Merrimack, New Hampshirewith a semester in Rome, Italy.
In May 1993, the
Fellowship of Catholic Scholarsrequested from the presidents of Catholic colleges a statement addressing the question: "What is a Catholic college?" Dr. Sampo's response provides a useful introduction to the founding vision of Thomas More. In it, he explains the college's commitment to providing the opportunity of receiving liberal arts education to all eager learners, not only those with the highest standardized test scores or most advantageous backgrounds. He roots this commitment in the college's identity as a Catholic school, saying that a recognition of the equality of all persons is part of the truth revealed by Christ, and, as such, ought to play a role in a Christian educational enterprise.

core curriculumat Thomas More College is similar to a Great Booksprogram. Students read the great works of Western literature, philosophy, and political science in their entirety rather than as a collection of excerpts. The course of study takes the form of a Humanities Cycle, in which all the students - freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors - engage the same works at the same time.
