You Got a Degree From Where?

Navigating Albuquerque's institutes of higher learning

Albuquerque Barber College

601 San Pedro NE, #100, 266-4900
Upside: Get a certificate in less than two years. Peruse old men's magazines while you wait.
Downside: Trade not as exciting since the disappearance of Kid 'n Play-style box cuts

Albuquerque Grooming Academy

2115 San Mateo NE, 256-8388
Upside: Albuquerque Grooming Academy is the oldest pet grooming school in New Mexico licensed by the New Mexico Commission on Higher Education. And you get to work with puppies.
Downside: They don't tell you about “expressing the anal gland” on Day 1.

Albuquerque Police Academy

5412 Second Street NW, 343-5000
