Computer Science Teacher Licensure

A partnership between faculty members from Computer Science, Education, and Applied Computing & Engineering Technology has developed the first K12 teacher licensure education program in the State of Montana for computer science. Limited opportunities in coding and programming are available to students at most high schools in Montana. A major obstacle has been the lack of qualified teachers in the curricular area of computer science. This important program of study has been developed to assist K12 schools by providing teacher education in the computer science domain. The curriculum for these teachers in training will include completion of CSCI 105 Computer Fluency and ITS 150 Cisco Networking I at Missoula College. Intentions are to enroll students in this new program by Autumn 2017.
