The University of Great Falls is a private, Roman Catholic liberal arts university located in Great Falls, Mont. Originally, the university was founded as a junior college for women in 1932. Soon the university merged to form a new school under the direction of the Sisters of Providence. There are more than 31 sites in Montana, Southern Alberta, and Wyoming where students can study, including online. The main campus is nestled between Yellowstone and Glacier National Park. More than 1,000 students attend the university yearly. The university also participates in a continuing education program at the Malmstrom Air Force Base. Several politicians have graduated from the university.
Currently, there are 40 undergraduate, eight graduate, and distance education degrees available through the University of Great Falls. With its small campus feel, students will learn in classroom settings that involve no more than 20 students. In most cases, classes are kept to 10 students. Through distance learning, students can earn a Great Falls education from their home. All programs are either operated through Moodle or LearnLinc. Moodle is an interactive learning platform that allows students to log in whenever their schedule allows. LearnLinc allows students to attend classes that are scheduled for live attendance. Online degrees focus on criminal justice, psychology, and management.
The University of Great Falls has been accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities since 1935.
