The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education and Department of Educational Psychology are consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Highly regarded University faculty and staff can take credit for these accomplishments.

Our instructors bring a wide range of professional expertise to their roles in the program, as noted in their biographical background information. Many have been K-12 classroom teachers, and all are involved in the day-to-day workings of public and private schools.

Our team works hard to meet the individual needs of students, instructors structure their coursework in ways that encourage our students to acquire pedagogical mastery and use it to transform teaching and learning in their classrooms and schools. Instructors are easily accessible to all  students and maintain close communication with their students, guiding and advising them throughout their two years in the program.
