The UW–Madison School of Education is distinguished by the diversity and quality of its undergraduate programs.
Consistently ranked in the top ten schools and colleges of education in national studies, the school prepares students for teaching, the health professions, and careers in the arts.
Many School of Education students begin their academic careers with a pre-professional designation. Usually after two years of course work, students apply for admission to the professional component of their program. Students admitted to campus as Art majors enter directly into that professional program. Dance majors are admitted based on an audition.
The School of Education includes 10 departments: Art, Counseling Psychology, Curriculum and Instruction, Dance, Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, Educational Policy Studies, Educational Psychology, Kinesiology, Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education, and Theatre and Drama.
