College of Health Sciences

Carroll University is recognized as a leader in the health sciences.

We offer one of the nation’s largest physical therapy programs with direct admit that allows you to complete your undergraduate and doctorate degrees in only six years. Our top-ranked nursing program consistently ranks among the top three in the state in NCLEX pass rates. Our partnerships with other universities and area healthcare providers set our programs apart and give you an advantage as you work toward your career in healthcare or prepare for an advanced degree in a professional program.

Carroll’s pioneering approach to the health sciences is complemented by our strong foundation in the liberal arts. You’ll learn much more than technical proficiency here. You’ll gain a broader knowledge of the human condition and greater understanding of cultures different from your own. You’ll become a well-rounded professional who puts people first, and brings humanity, compassion and respect to your role in helping others.

Think changing the world is someone else’s responsibility? Pioneers think differently. It begins here. It starts with you.

The list below includes our majors, where you'll concentrate the majority of your study in pursuit of your degree. Some majors are supplemented by collections of courses called emphases (e) which enhance your study in a particular area and will appear on your transcript. Below the major list, you'll find our minors, which you can choose to add on to broaden your learning in other subjects.
