All education minors may be combined with the Elementary Education major or with any secondary Education or K-12 Education major.
Minors, when combined with a teaching major and successful completion of the requirements of the Teacher Education Program, lead to a recommendation licensure in the State of Montana. The UMW Department of Education strongly recommends that candidates seek licensure in more than one subject area (by combining at least one teaching major with at least one other teaching major or minor) to increase their hiring options.
Note: not all states accept a minor for licensure. Consult with the Director of Field Experiences for information on licensure requirements in other states.
Candidates must complete all required courses with no grade below B-
2 Students in an internship program (e.g. Class 5 teachers) will substitute 4 credits of EDU 498 - Internship for each semester they are enrolled in an internship.
Note: As a prerequisite to the Special Education Minor/Endorsement, students must complete the equivalent of an introductory course in Special Education: (UMW equivalency: EDU 201, EDU 222, EDU 311, and EDU 382)
