College Degree Finder

Carthage College is owned and operated by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a mainstreet Protestant denomination. It is based in the city of Kenosha, in the state of Wisconsin, about half way between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois. Carthage is primarily an undergraduate liberal arts college that offers bachelor’s degrees. However, it does offer one master’s degree program in education. With roughly 2,400 full-time students and an additional 900 part-time students, Carthage is considered a mid-size college.

Carthage is accredited by the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges to award the Bachelor of Arts. Bachelor’s degrees are offered in over 40 academic fields of study and several career-oriented disciplines. The college also offers a Master of Education degree designed for aspiring educators and teachers. Through a partnership with Loyola University Chicago (a private Jesuit university) Carthage students may also pursue a master’s degree in Social Work.

The college has a faculty of about 150, most of which have a doctorate or terminal degree in their field of expertise.
