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.
Ensemble participation is expected of Music K-12 Minors each semester of full-time attendance, except the student teaching semester. Also there are piano and voice requirements for the Music Education professional. Consult Music faculty for details.
