Albertus Magnus College is a Catholic private liberal arts college in New Haven, Connecticut, United States. Founded by the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs (now Dominican Sisters of Peace), it is located about two miles (3 km) from the central campus of Yale University in a residential area near the border with Hamden. The neighborhood is on Prospect Street just above Edgerton Park and near East Rock. In addition to undergraduate majors, minors and concentrations, including pre-professional preparation, there are graduate programs in art therapy, leadership, liberal studies, fine arts in creative writing, human services, business administration, education, and management and organizational leadership. The college uses several of the area's historic 19th century mansions as residence halls and administrative buildings.
