Added Endorsements and the OPI Teaching Endorsement Internship Pathway

At MSU we value the opportunity to support currently licensed Montana Teachers in adding teaching endorsement. We do so through the OPI Teaching Endorsement Internship pathway (formerly known as BPE Internship). 

The Teaching Endorsement Internship and added endorsements requires all coursework to be completed within three years while making adequate yearly progress (minimum of six credits per year completed). The program requires participation from you and your employing administrator throughout the duration of the Internship engagement, as well as both Fall and Spring enrollment and participation in CEEX 280 (unless enrolled in the coordinated FCS graduate program or Library Media Certification program).

This program is rigorous and requires a commitment to participation.
