Master’s in Education Programs in Montana

According to a 2005 American Federation of Teachers Survey, Montana teachers, even those with master’s degrees, make among the nation’s lowest salaries. Teachers with master’s degrees make only around $32,000 per year, while teachers with PhDs make just around $35,000. However, choosing to teach with a master’s degree in Montana still offers some distinct advantages. Montana is a large, open state filled with mountains and ranches. Its low population density means it’s not crowded and has a low cost of living, so teachers do not necessarily need to make much to live well. And because Montana requires teachers to have a master’s degree to earn a professional teaching certificate, most teachers who want to make a long-term career out of teaching in the state must plan to earn a master’s degree.

The host of the Center for Learning and Teaching in the West, an organization dedicated to improving math and science education in Western states, Montana State University’s Bozeman campus offers a master’s of education program through alternative certification.

The master’s programs allow students to focus on studies that range from reading to counseling.

The 37-credit plan of study can be used to help teachers transition to a role in administration.
