We combine rigorous academic training with unique opportunities for research and internships. You will learn with the strongest set of political science students in the Rocky Mountain West.

Our location in Montana's state capital gives you unparalled to state and federal governments, including internships that yield hands-on experience, professional contacts, and job offers.

Life After Graduation

Carroll is a great place to sharpen your skills and get a start in legal and political careers. Many students work in Helena for the Governor's office, for lobbyists or for U.S. Senators while completing their studies.

Graduates go on to careers in state or federal agencies, political campaigns, or business. Others go straight to law school after graduation, or serve their communities as teachers or organizers.
