About

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction at the University of Wisconsin Madison offers two pathways for the master’s degree: a master of science with secondary teacher certification is offered as an M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Research Master’s program, with a focus on advanced work in education.

Overview

The M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin Madison prepares students for advanced work in education. In some cases, work leading to the degree prepares students to enter a new career as an educational specialist (e.g., curriculum developer, content-area specialist, school department head, curriculum supervisor, early childhood specialist, ESL or bilingual teacher, or reading teacher). In other cases, it prepares students to perform at a higher level in their existing job. In yet other cases, it prepares students for Ph.D. study.

Motivations for master's degree work include professional updating, maintenance of accreditation, acquisition of new perspectives and skills, development of specialized knowledge, preparation to work with student teachers, preparation for leadership among teachers, and preparation for advanced graduate study.
