About Our Program 

(Sobre nuestro programa en español– Próximamente)

The UW-Madison Master of Science in Curriculum & Instruction (C&I) 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 teaching 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 12-14 months.  The program is a full-time arrangement.  A new cohort starts each June, and candidates earn certification by the following June.

Candidates in English, math, science, and social studies complete a second summer to earn their MS degree and can be certified in both their subject area and in English as a Second Language to teach middle and high school. World Language candidates complete their MS degree in the spring semester and are certified to teach k-12.
