Montana Masters in Education

Montana residents are among the highest in the nation in receiving their high-school diplomas, yet among the lowest in the nation in completing a postsecondary education. Thus, Montana teachers who go the extra mile in pursuing their education will have a distinct advantage over their peers.

The state currently reports teacher shortages in several areas including career and technical education, math, science, and the arts. Teachers who have obtained their master’s degrees will be better prepared for these jobs, as well as appear more attractive to school districts looking to fill those slots.
