Message from the Dean
The Theodore Maria School of Arts at Assumption University is a destination of choice for those seeking to advance their knowledge of language and essentially learn about business discipline and entrepreneurship in a truly international learning environment. It is indeed this kind of hybrid that culminates in our teaching and learning uniqueness, producing graduates with the best of both worlds.
With almost 40 years of educational commitment, the School takes pride in offering quality business language programs equipped with competent and devoted lecturers
and applicative curriculums. We now have over 10,000 alumni who serve in various industries locally, regionally and globally. In fact, a significant number of Arts graduates play major roles in the private sector as business leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, and service providers who excel in their language ability.
For students, welcome to the Arts family where together we can make meaningful change through language education and business inspiration. May your years at the Theodore Maria School of Arts (TMSA) and Assumption University be ones of enjoyment, progress, and fulfillment.
