Albertus Magnus College—conveniently located on a beautiful 50-acre campus in the Prospect Hill neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut—is committed to the success of every student. Our values- and liberal arts–based four-year private education will prepare you not only for a career but for life.
Thanks to our diverse population of 500+ students, a wide range of academic concentrations, and a supportive faculty, the College is alive with many opportunities, activities, and mutual respect for others. Just like you, current students at Albertus are curious and looking for new and interesting ways to approach scholarly challenges as well as social issues. We want you to grow into a lifelong learner and be a successful contributor to your community.
As a Catholic college whose mission is deeply rooted in the Dominican tradition, the four pillars of study, prayer, community, and service are the driving force of everything that makes Albertus an excellent environment in which to grow. The pursuit of veritas, or truth, and the practice of disputatio, or dialogue, are shown in the time-tested liberal arts curriculum that supports every major. These connections are evident between students and their peers, faculty, and the surrounding New Haven community in their daily interactions.
