At Carroll, professors, not their assistants, teach classes and are accessible to students. Experts in their fields, Carroll professors will provide you rigorous academic challenges in an atmosphere valuing ethics and moral principles. Your education will include not only stimulating classes and discussions but also special events.
Past special events include the April 2000 three-day conference, “The 100 Years That Made 2000 A.D.,” which was organized by Carroll philosophy professor Dr. Barry Ferst and evaluated how the years 311 to 410 transformed Christianity from an outlaw sect to the official religion of the Roman Empire.
