The school was founded in 1893 as Montana State Normal School. It was formerly known as Western Montana College before becoming part of the University of Montana System.


Experience One

The University of Montana Western developed Experience One, a scheduling model emphasizing active, hands-on experiential learning. To facilitate this, the full term is divided into four, roughly month long learning modules known as blocks in which students focus on one course at a time over the course of eighteen instructional days. The transition to this model was complete beginning with the Fall 2005 semester.[2] Montana Western is the only public higher education institution in the U.S. offering this scheduling model.[3]


Montana Western is a member of the Frontier Conference, an affiliate of the NAIA's Division 1. The men's teams in basketball, football, golf, and rodeo and women's teams in basketball, golf, rodeo, and volleyball are known as the Bulldogs.
