Elementary Education Baccalaureate Track #1

This plan is a 2+2 Program for students to complete the entirety of their AA at Missoula College, followed by a BA in Elementary Education at the UM mountain campus, within four years.

This plan assumes that the student places into M 095 and WRIT 101. Should the student place below these levels, additional coursework may be required; this, in turn, may extend the length of the overall plan.
