Albertus Magnus College is a four-year, private, liberal arts, co-educational college offering undergraduate and graduate programs. It was founded in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. Albertus was the first Catholic, liberal arts, residential college for women in New England. It has been co-educational since 1985. Albertus offers more than 50 undergraduate majors, minors and concentrations and 11 graduate programs. The Dominican tradition is the driving force of all that makes Albertus Magnus College an excellent academic community in which to grow. Not only is the pursuit of Veritas, or truth, shown in the well-rounded, exploratory liberal arts curriculum that supports every major, but it is also noticeable in the everyday interactions between students and their peers, faculty and the surrounding New Haven community. Students at Albertus Magnus College are curious, and they are always seeking new ways to approach scholarly challenges and social issues alike in an attempt to grow as lifelong learners and successful members of their community. Thanks to its diverse student population, wide range of academic concentrations, and supportive, personally invested faculty members, the College is alive with a world of vibrancy and mutual respect.
