Founded in 1909, Carroll College is a small, Catholic liberal arts college located in Helena, Montana. The school has an undergraduate population of nearly 1,500 students, around 2/3 of whom are Montana residents. Carroll is often ranked near or at the top of Western Regional rankings for overall quality, for veterans and for economic value.
The school offers more than 40-degree programs, including pre-professional degrees in:
- Veterinary Science
Students also have a far higher than average acceptance into medical and dental programs, almost doubling the national average at 85 percent. They also offered the first ever degree program in Anthrozoology, which looks at the interactions between humans and animals.
While the school has a Roman Catholic affiliation, only around half of the student body is made up of practicing Catholics. However, the school does require students to take at least two theology classes as a part of their CORE requirements, along with things like mathematics, science, etc. They also have a successful football team that has won six NAIA National Football Championships, nicknamed “The Fighting Saints.”
