A cooperative program between UW-Whitewater and UW-Madison provides an opportunity for students to earn a Master of Science (M.S.) Degree in Educational Administration from UW-Madison by completing a substantial amount of their course work on the UW-Whitewater campus. Twenty-four credits of the 33 credits required by the program may be taken at UW-Whitewater through a combination of UW-Whitewater courses and UW-Madison courses offered at UW-Whitewater.
The program combines the unique resources of the two institutions to assist qualified persons to add dimension to their education through (1) intensive study in the theory and practice of educational administration, (2) refinement of skills and attitudes essential to educational leaders, and (3) further study in related educational fields such as curriculum and guidance. The program is designed to prepare persons for leadership positions at all levels of education, both public and private.
Students in the program may simultaneously pursue licensure as school administrators as well as establish a foundation for an academic and career ladder leading to specialist and doctoral degrees at UW-Madison in Educational Administration.
Students must be admitted to the UW-Madison Graduate School and the UW-Madison Department of Educational Administration as well as by the UW-Whitewater School of Graduate Studies and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Applicants should contact the Cooperative Program Coordinator for a list of current admission requirements and application forms.
