What is UST Most Known For?


Describe UST Using a Hashtag
To help you better understand what UST is about, we stopped undergraduate students on campus and asked them to do this. Their answers included everything from "diversity" to "faith and reason" to "individuality."

Academic advisorDegree plans are broken into:

  • Majors
  • Minors
  • Pre-professional programs

Major degree plans show courses you'll need to earn your degree.

If you want to add a minor, minor plans show courses you'll need for that minor.

You can also combine your major with a pre-professional track like pre-med or pre-law. The pre-professional plans outline courses that will better prepare you for entering grad school, medical school, law school, etc. These courses may or may not be required for your application to those schools. Your academic adviser can assist with any questions you have.
