Montana State University

MT Rural Leadership

Overview of Program Delivery

Courses in this option will be delivered using a blended model of online instruction, distance delivery methods, and face-to-face instruction.  During the school year, online instruction and distance delivery methods will be used; however, students should expect to attend one on-campus face-to-face, weekend class session each semester attend professional conferences. During the summer session, online instruction and distance delivery methods will be used; and students should plan to attend the Montana Rural Education Association meeting usually held in mid-June and stay at the conference location for 3 days before or after the conference for face to face instruction.
