About University of Montana Western
The University of Montana Western is a place that embraces its mission statement each day by sustaining a culture of concentrated experiential education. The University of Montana Western prides itself on providing a unique educational opportunity for students. Montana Western’s educational experience is specifically designed for undergraduate students. Our faculty incorporate nationally recognized instructional strategies. Student success at Montana Western is evident in the number of students who return each year and who graduate.
Experience One (X1) is the University of Montana Western’s instructional delivery model that creates a specialized and dynamic teaching and learning environment. Students complete one course, or “block,” in 18 days and four courses/blocks a semester. This makes it possible to participate in international travel courses, to engage in research projects with faculty members, and to balance academics with work and athletics schedules.
Students enjoy Montana Western’s small class sizes and find that working with just one group of students at a time makes it easier to meet others. In addition, each course is three hours a day with the same professor. Th...is allows students to spend extended time with one professor for 18 days. Professors create learning opportunities that are authentic and have real-world application so that students are well prepared for work and for life. Montana Western’s one course at a time is exciting, different and life-changing for our students.
