About Our Program 

(Sobre nuestro programa en español– Próximamente)

The UW-Madison Master of Science in Curriculum & Instruction program with dual certification is for those whose passion for learning and commitment to diversity has inspired them to transform the education experience for others as a teacher.

Everything about the structure and organization of our secondary education program is designed with one outcome in mind—to create a better world in the classroom. We do this by preparing teachers with the skills and tools they need to be confident leaders in the classroom and community for a wide variety of learners.

Our intensive sequence of coursework and community/classroom experiences demands a high level of commitment for 14 months.  The program is a full-time arrangement for two summers and the interceding academic year.

Whether you are looking to start your first career or make a shift, our program will help you take the next step. Graduates of our secondary education program will earn a Master’s of Science degree and be certified in both their subject area and in English as a Second Language.

 

To learn more

The secondary education program is organized around four initial teaching certification content areas: English, mathematics, science, and social studies.   Please select a link below to learn about the details associated with each area.  (Candidates may apply to multiple areas, but may only be admitted in one area)

To explore the program structure and timetable, please take a look at our Program Overview Page.  Contact the Program Director with questions, Joey Lubasi (lubasi@wisc.edu)

Our program is infused with a  philosophy that the teacher must be able to engage and value all students in the classroom.   One vital element of the approach is learning to work with students learning English.  All candidates will learn about this teaching field and have the opportunity to earn a teaching certification.  To learn more, please contact ESL Program Coordinator, Kaycee Rogers  (krogers23@wisc.edu)
