Theatre Education Concentration

Notes:

  • This education concentration contains different/additional course requirements designed to meet state standards. Those interested in teaching in K-12 schools must complete the teaching concentration of a major in a teaching content area plus the Teacher Education Program through the Department of Teaching and Learning. Additional teaching areas can be added through completion of the teaching concentration of a major or the teaching/education minor in that content area.

  • To complete this concentration, you need to contact the Teaching and Learning Department. Approvals for this concentration must come from the Teaching and Learning Department.

  • This major does not qualify as a single field endorsement. Individuals must complete the teaching track of a second major or minor in another teaching content area. The demand in Montana high schools for teaching of courses in this field is limited. The required second endorsement should be in a field in high demand.
