Master's Programmes



Founded in 1909 in Helena, Montana, by the Catholic Diocese of Helena, Carroll offers an outstanding and affordable education that positions students aggressively for successful job placement and admission to graduate, law and medical schools.


At the laying of the cornerstone of what he then called "Capitol Hill College," Bishop John Carroll declared, "Knowledge and virtue are the armor with which Capitol Hill College shall strive to equip its students." With these words Bishop Carroll dedicated the site where St. Charles Hall would soon stand: the centerpiece of the college he visioned and built and that would one day bear his name.
