    School Overview

    When Carlos Albizu University first opened in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1966, the school hoped to provide a graduate program in clinical psychology that met both the mental health and culturally sensitive needs of residents in Puerto Rico. In 1980, the University extended programs to a Miami, Florida campus, and by 2000, the University further dersified academic programs. Today, it is a private, not-for-profit university, and Carlos Albizu offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

    Carlos Albizu University awards doctorate, master’s, and bachelor’s degrees, along with certificate programs. Academic programs are held in a three-story building located in the center of historic San Juan. The 18-acre Miami Campus features academic facilities, a library and research resources, computer labs, in addition to student lounges and a cafeteria. Likewise, the Miami campus supports a multicultural and bilingual atmosphere.
