Albertus Magnus College: we have faith in your future.

Albertus Magnus College is a four-year private liberal arts college located in the vibrant heart of southern Connecticut. Founded in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, Albertus Magnus College educates men and women to become leaders in all areas.

Family
We are small by design, and our faculty members are one of the College’s greatest assets. Our student-faculty ratio of 14:1 allows teachers and staff to get to know students on an individual basis, and faculty are readily accessible for academic counseling.

The 50-acre campus, an idyllic New England setting, is located in a residential neighborhood of New Haven’s historic Prospect Hill, with several turn-of-the-century mansions sprawled over rolling green lawns. About 60% of students live on campus in housing that has been converted from former mansions. Both New York City and Boston are easily accessible by train, and Tweed New Haven Airport provides service to more than 300 destinations.

The 500 students who attend the traditional undergraduate programs at Albertus come from many states as well as other countries. The highest percentage of students come from nearby New England states.

The campus features facilities such as Bree Common, which houses classrooms, a Starbucks coffee bar, and an atrium and patio for student gatherings and studying. The Albertus campus is entirely wireless and offers multiple computer labs.

Named for an alumna whose bequest is the largest unrestricted gift ever received by the College, the Shea Softball Complex is the newest addition to our campus. The Complex brings our women’s softball home games back to the heart of campus.

As a member of the NCAA, the Albertus #FearlessFalcons compete at the Division III level. The College offers opportunities to participate in basketball, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, tennis, golf, baseball, and softball. Women’s field hockey and swimming are anticipated for 2019.

Over the past five years, Albertus student-athletes have earned five GNAC titles and have competed in five NCAA tournaments.

Rigorous
Recently Albertus received a major National Science Foundation five-year grant for S-STEM (Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The first five STEM scholarships were awarded in 2017. In addition to the scholarships, the grant supports activities to increase the number of graduates who are prepared to enter the workplace or pursue graduate studies in one of the STEM fields.

Albertus Magnus College strives to provide students with opportunities to reach their full potential and prepare for meaningful careers through experiential learning. Our students participate in practica, internships, service learning, faculty-mentored student research, field experiences, and student teaching. Students have the opportunity to study abroad through a number of programs.

Values based
We are a Catholic college in the Dominican tradition. An Albertus education is built on the four pillars of the Dominican charism: study, prayer, community, and service.

The College believes that training in the liberal arts is excellent preparation for life and offers the groundwork for a multitude of professions. A survey of recent graduates found that 95% of 2016 undergraduates were employed or in graduate school six months after graduation. Popular majors at Albertus include Art Therapy, Business, Criminal Justice, Communications, Education, Psychology, and Sociology.

Practical
Albertus Magnus College is small by design, personal in nature, and ready to talk to you about choosing your academic home. Campus tours and class observations are encouraged.
