Students must take all core courses from The University of Montana’s curriculum, but can receive content credit for relevant practicum and internships experience and for relevant courses taken at other universities if approved by the program director.

Interested students need to complete the “add a minor” section on the “change of major” form and secure the signature of the program director. This form can be obtained from the program director or the Registrar’s office. One semester prior to graduation, the program director must approve and sign the student’s graduation plan. Students are asked to complete a written exit interview for the purpose of program assessment.
