Carroll College Offers Dual Degree with St. Edward’s University

HELENA, MT – Carroll College is pleased to announce a new combined degree program with St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. The newly created partnership provides an opportunity for students at St. Edward’s University to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Carroll College.

The partnership is a dual degree 3-2 program. Students enrolled in the program spend three years at St. Edward’s University and two years at Carroll College. After completing the academic requirements of both institutions, students shall be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree from St. Edward’s and the Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Carroll College.

This arrangement is similarly modeled after Carroll’s current 3-2 dual degree engineering program wherein a Carroll student spends three years at Carroll working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Engineering Mathematics and then matriculates to one of seven affiliated universities for two years of additional study in their chosen engineering field. Dual degrees are then awarded after coursework is successfully completed at the affiliated university.

“This new program provides a win-win for both schools. St. Edward’s students benefit by receiving a highly-valued degree in Civil Engineering from Carroll and Carroll benefits by attracting additional students to our campus,” said Carroll President Dr. Tom Evans. “Plus, St. Edward’s students will feel very at home at Carroll as we are both nationally ranked, Catholic, liberal arts based colleges in the West,” said Evans.

This is a first-of-its-kind arrangement for St. Edward’s University. “We’ve received many requests from our students who want engineering degrees informed by the liberal arts,” said Dr. George E. Martin, president of St. Edward’s University. “We are pleased to be able to respond to those interests with this new dual degree program.”
