Albertus Magnus College:

The Mission Statement of Albertus Magnus College is to provide men and women with an education that promotes the search for truth in all its dimensions and is practical in its application. Founded by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, Albertus Magnus College, faithful to its Catholic heritage and the Judeo-Christian tradition, remains dedicated to providing an opportunity for learning which responds to the academic needs and ethical challenges of its students and society.

The mission of Albertus Magnus College derives from the intellectual tradition of the Dominican Order, whose essential motto is the search for truth (“Veritas”). Reflective of the dedication and commitment to service of the College’s founder and sponsor—the Dominican Sisters of Peace—members of the Albertus community assume responsibility for the fulfillment of a particular service as an academic community. Principles that guide the College’s mission and purpose include the following:

  • The College embraces the liberal arts tradition and is committed to a vibrant curriculum, including a general education program that is both scholarly and humanistically enlarging;
  • The College encourages students to participate in academic internships, practica and relevant work experiences as preparation for meaningful careers;
  • The College strives to bring together a richly diverse student body and cultivates an atmosphere of mutual respect and ethical behavior;
  • The College fosters close, positive interaction between faculty and students, thereby offering broad opportunities for challenge and growth;
  • The College provides an educational environment dedicated to enhancing each student’s development, both as an individual and as a member of society; and
  • The College prepares students to become responsible, productive citizens and lifelong learners, encouraging them to contribute to their communities and to become moral leaders in a complex world.

Today the College thrives as a diverse and dynamic institution serving 1,500 students in three distinct degree programs: traditional undergraduate, accelerated adult undergraduate and master’s degrees. Since the early 1970s, Albertus has been a pioneer in the education of adults who seek to complete or begin a college degree. In 1985, the College admitted men to all programs. Albertus Magnus College welcomes veterans and their families, and participates fully in the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

The Albertus campus provides a distinctive environment for students, faculty and staff. The College’s 50-acre, park-like campus, within walking distance to downtown New Haven, is located in one of the city’s most distinguished residential neighborhoods, Prospect Hill, which features both early 20th-century mansions and modern architectural gems. On campus, mansions serve as residence halls and administrative offices. Several academic, student services and athletic buildings grace the campus, each of which has been renovated and updated in recent years. Additional offices and classrooms are housed in the College’s East Hartford Learning Center.

Academics:

An inclusive and student-centered community, the College serves approximately 500 full-time traditional undergraduate students and nearly 1,000 students enrolled in an array of online, graduate and accelerated degree programs. Students are supported by a caring faculty who understand the challenges students face as they juggle rigorous coursework, demanding jobs and family responsibilities.

The College’s diverse student body is currently drawn from eight states and two countries. Albertus employs 48 full-time and 79 part-time faculty members with a primary focus on teaching. Ninety percent of full-time faculty hold a Ph.D. or the terminal degree in their field. Albertus enjoys a 14:1 student to faculty ratio, along with the support of 130 administrators and staff, providing a highly individualized educational experience for every student.

The College’s commitment to student success is evident across all aspects of campus life. With a liberal arts and sciences curriculum at its core and a strong professional focus, Albertus delivers a network of relevant undergraduate and graduate programs, including more than 50 undergraduate majors, minors and concentrations; six five-year bachelor’s to master’s programs; and ten graduate and professional degree programs.
