For The Adventure

At Carroll, you’ll be challenged and inspired—in our classrooms and in the rugged beauty of Montana’s Rockies. You’ll find community—where our Catholic traditions invite people of all beliefs to pursue lives of meaning. You’ll focus on more than academic success and career preparation—you’ll ask the big questions that take a lifetime to answer.   

Like all adventures, your journey here will take unexpected turns and lead to surprising discoveries—which is exactly what makes the Carroll College journey worth it.

Learning in—and for—the world

Success today requires more than competence in a single field or academic discipline. Our Catholic liberal arts tradition develops skills that will prepare you to understand your chosen path—and the ever-changing world around you—today, in the future, and for life. 

Here, you’ll learn by doing, with access to internships, study abroad, experiential and service learning opportunities, and undergraduate research. Your Carroll academic adventure will be hands-on and impactful—preparing you for career success and a life of mindful service. 

The Carroll adventure, through its liberal arts curriculum, has expanded my thinking and challenged me to learn and study things I would never have chosen to do on my own.

We enjoy a truly special relationship with the Helena community, and our students enjoy the kind of lifestyle here that very few colleges or universities in the country can match.
