Undergraduate Preparation Requirements

Core content coursework is required for all individuals seeking initial elementary teaching licensure through the University of Montana educator preparation programs. Content coursework includes a minimum of 3 credits of college-level composition, 9 credits of math directly related to elementary education, 9 credits of science, and 9 credits of social studies. Those in the M.Ed. program must document completion of the following content through their undergraduate coursework. For any content not previously completed, coursework must be completed as part of the M.Ed. program of study.

If your undergraduate preparation does not meet some of the above content requirements, you do not have to complete these prior to admission. However, these program requirements must be met prior to the Level 3 methods courses and C&I 590 supervised teaching internship.
