Montana Western is working to address teacher shortages in rural Montana with our innovative curriculum and instructional design.   Our instructional design goes beyond classrooms and textbooks and allows students to dive deep into the real world classroom.  This program is designed for individuals with non-teaching degrees interested in becoming a teacher.   

The Post-Baccalaureate Program delivers online education courses that lead to teacher licensure in the state of Montana.  Plans of study are personalized, pairing previous degrees obtained with a desired area of study.  This program is intended to be completed within three years.
