Graduate Students

We offer several graduate programs in the College of Education and Professional Studies, whether you are interested in achieving a Master's degree or a graduate-level certificate. Some programs may also include initial or advanced Wisconsin teacher licensing options. For more information, please reference our graduate program information. Our programs provide advanced academic preparation enabling students to think critically, create and disseminate research, and engage in a global society. Graduate students in our programs gain the knowledge, expertise, and confidence necessary to take their career to the next level and to be leaders in their profession and community.

We also encourage you to visit the School of Graduate Studies for additional information on graduate programs across UW-W, admission, application procedures, financial assistance, and so on. 

Graduate Advising

Graduate students should consult their Program Coordinator or assigned faculty advisor with questions regarding orientation, degree or certificate requirements, course registration, and graduation.

Please note that some of our graduate programs require the completion of a professional development plan (PDP), portfolio, and/or capstone project. Be sure to consult your graduate advisor to learn more details if your program requires such. Students should begin planning very early for their capstone project; the first semester of the program is recommended, particularly in the Master of Science in Education in Professional Development (MSE-PD) which offers multiple emphases.
