  • Carroll University is Wisconsin’s oldest four-year institution of higher learning. A premier private, co-educational, comprehensive university, Carroll combines historic architecture with modern technology. Excellent teaching and individualized attention are hallmarks of the Carroll Experience.

    With a total enrollment of approximately 3,400, the institution is large enough for a wide variety of academic offerings (more than 60 areas of study), a growing number of graduate programs and a large assortment of co-curricular activities. An average class size of 21 keeps the experience personal.

    Ideally located near Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago, Carroll provides an abundance of top research, internship, clinical and student teaching placements, and vibrant cultural and social opportunities. Students are encouraged to have international experiences, through a short-term immersion or longer study abroad program, and all students will gain cultural competency through the newly revised General Education program.

    Five graduate-level programs are offered, including master's degree programs in business, education, physician assistant studies and software engineering, and a clinical doctorate in physical therapy. All are housed at Carroll's state-of-the-art Center for Graduate Studies, designed specifically for these programs while allowing for continual advancement.

    Carroll provides a superior educational opportunity grounded in the liberal arts tradition and focused on career preparation and lifelong learning, all at an affordable cost.
