A world of difference.

Carroll graduates emerge as creative problem solvers and engaged citizens with the character and courage to succeed as tomorrow's leaders.

We welcome students of all faiths to Carroll College. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to preparing students for careers while providing for the intellectual, spiritual, moral, personal, and social development of each student.

We offer outstanding academic programs and our small size, safe campus, and wonderful location create a special place in which to study. A list of our majors can be found here.

Where are we located?

With a population of around 60,000, Helena, the capital city of Montana, is easy to get around, but large enough to offer outstanding cultural activities. Carroll is located in the heart of Helena.  From campus you can walk to downtown for shopping, dining and entertainment.

Enjoy year round recreational opportunities including river rafting and hiking in the summer and skiing and snow boarding in the winter. Mt. Helena, where you can hike anytime, is about a twenty minute walk from campus.
