All education minors may be combined with the Elementary Education, BS 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 TEP Admission processes , 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.
The Early Childhood Education: Prekindergarten-Grade 3 minor is designed for on campus students who are completing the BS in Elementary Education and who would like to obtain Pre-Kindergarten-Grade 3 endorsement in addition to K-8 licensure.
Note: Not all states accept a minor for licensure. Consult with the Director of Field Experiences for information on licensure requirements in other states.
