About Carthage College

Our campus is a peaceful arboretum with breathtaking lake views — but we’re located in the vibrant city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, with Chicago and Milwaukee just a short trip away.

Classes are small with an average of just 17 students — but opportunities loom large. Carthage students land coveted jobs and internships, compete in 28 varsity sports, expand their impact through 130+ student organizations, and pursue passions as far-reaching as underwater study to out-of-this-orbit NASA research.

Carthage’s degree programs are powerful and purposeful — but rooted in the liberal arts, so students graduate prepared not just with the skills they need to excel in their first job, but the critical thinking skills and adaptability they’ll need to succeed in every job after that.

Carthage College is a private, religious college in the suburb of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Carthage College was founded in 1847. The college currently enrolls around 2,667 students per year, including 2,559 undergraduate students.
