This course is offered through the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center's Program on Ethics and Public Affairs at The University of Montana beginning August 1-5, from 9:00am-5:00pm, with pre-course online work. All participants must pay a course fee to the Program on Ethics and Public Affairs and separate fees to UM Continuing Education for online learning and optional academic credit . Follow the steps described above to pay all relevant fees.
Difference between taking the course for credit or as a workshop: taking the course for academic credit requires an additional payment of $135 and is designed for those who want an academic record of their participation. This fee only applies for those wishing to receive a transcript: if you are not interested in receiving credit or a grade, you may prefer to take the course as a workshop.
If you do intend to take the course for credit and to transfer those credits to your home institution, we suggest that you check with your home institution before registering, as your institution may require you to make arrangements with your home institution's registrar before attending our courses.
This course includes a workshop session in Missoula, MT, which all participants are expected to attend. If you plan on flying into Missoula, we recommend that you book your flight as early as possible. In addition to using the local airport -- Missoula International Airport (MSO) -- visitors sometimes choose to fly into Spokane, WA, and drive to Missoula.
The course meetings will occur on the campus of The University of Montana, and there are a number of hotels and bed and breakfasts within easy walking distance, including the Holiday Inn Express, the Doubletree Hotel Missoula/Edgewater and Blossom's Bed and Breakfast. Participants who want to stay on campus in the student dorms should contact the UM Residence Life Office to discuss options and availability. Again, we suggest that you make your arrangements early to ensure availability.
Missoula and western Montana are beautiful, particularly in the summer months. A number of national parks and wilderness recreation areas are within easy driving distance; if you enjoy outdoor recreation, you may be interested in spending some extra time in Montana. If you're thinking of doing so, the Missoula Convention and Visitors Bureau and Missoula.com magazine may interest you.
