Teaching Endorsements

Besides its undergraduate degree programs, the Division of Education at Salish Kootenai College also has supported graduate degrees and special education endorsements offered through other education institutions using a variety of formats to accommodate specific student needs and circumstances.

Currently the Division of Education has a very successful partnership with The University of Montana-Western in Dillon wherein Native students are provided with financial, technological, and academic support regarding the acquisition of their special education endorsements on their teaching licenses.

Interested parties may contact Dr. Merle Farrier at (406) 275-4762 or at  merle_farrier@skc.edu for additional information.

SKC’s Division of Education has also been exploring other licensing endorsements, including its own special education program, and a Native American Studies endorsement. These and other initiatives are currently in their early developmental stages. For  more information regarding education licensing endorsements, contact DoE Dean Dr. Cindy O’Dell, (406)275-4752 or at cindy_odell@skc.edu
