Well Carlos Albizu University offers challenging programs in Psychology, Education, Speech and Language, Criminal Justice, and Business Administration. CAU is a great fit for students of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds that are interested in working in a multicultural area.
The historical origin of Carlos Albizu University dates back to the year 1966. The Institution was founded in Puerto Rico with the specific objective of offering a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology. At that time, there were very few mental health professionals on the Island and most of them received their professional education outside of Puerto Rico.
Upon completion of professional studies outside of Puerto Rico, returning mental health professionals were confronted with the necessity of adapting their training to Puerto Rican socio-cultural realities. Carlos Albizu University was developed in response to the need for culturally sensitive professional training. The San Juan Campus of Carlos Albizu University continues in this tradition and is today an educational institution with programs of study and research founded, both in theory and practice, on the multicultural heritage of Puerto Rico.
With the establishment of the Miami Campus of Carlos Albizu University in 1980, the Institution responded to the need in the continental USA for graduate psychology programs sensitive to cultural and ethnic issues. In December of 2000, Carlos Albizu University was established in order to allow for the diversification of the Institution's program offerings in continuing its mission. Through the programs at its two campuses, CAU provides professional training that is relevant and responsive to the mental health needs of the communities served and to the needs for culturally sensitive research, thereby contributing to the development of the professions of psychology and health.
