Master of Science for Professional Educators

The Master of Science for Professional Educators (MSPE) is a convenient, uniquely blended distance education program offered through the Department of Educational Psychology in the School of Education.

Fall and Spring courses are online, and summer courses are online for six weeks, with two weeks of face-to-face learning on the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

MSPE integrates courses from three School of Education departments – Educational Psychology, Curriculum & Instruction, and Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis – leading to a Master of Science in Educational Psychology degree. In just two years, teaching professionals can complete this degree in one of the leading educational psychology departments (as listed in the rankings of the U.S. News & World Report’s edition of best graduate schools).
