In its strong commitment to a liberal arts curriculum, the College affirms its fidelity to the life of the human mind and spirit. At Albertus we believe that training in the liberal arts is excellent preparation for life. A liberal arts background not only enriches one’s daily existence, but also offers a firm foundation for mastery, either in college or afterwards, of vocational skills and the ability to utilize ever-changing technology.

At Albertus the learning experience is a joint effort in which both faculty and students take part. The Albertus community prides itself on its intellectual excellence, its high ideals, and its recognition of each person as a unique individual of dignity and worth, to whose development and achievements the college years are directed.

The total program of the College has as its purpose an education for a fuller personal life, for sensitive and worthwhile participation in a democratic society, and for carrying out the Dominican ideal: the search for truth in all its dimensions.
