Elementary Education Baccalaureate Track #2

This plan is a baccalaureate track for students who wish to remain Missoula College students for the entirety of their AA degree completion, and who then plan to pursue a BA in Elementary Education through the UM mountain campus.

This plan is also appropriate for students who may not be able to enroll in Summer Session courses, or who are unsure if they want to pursue Elementary Education, but want to work towards that direction as they complete an AA.

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.

  • TOTAL CREDITS EARNED FOR AA DEGREE: 60
