The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's master of education in Professional Development graduate program is a blended weekend and online, 30-credit cohort program designed specifically for the professional development of educators.


All Professional Development courses at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire throughout the program focus on equity, diversity, inclusivity and social justice, critical thinking and building community. Each course is co-taught with a UWEC faculty member and a public K-12 schoolteacher, with the ultimate goal of developing collaborative leaders. 


Coursework is intentionally designed for continuous application of theory to practice in your own classroom, allowing you to find the strategies, methods and practices that work best for you. As part of a final capstone requirement, you’ll develop your own action research project and discover how you can change your professional practice and improve student learning.

As a graduate of the MEPD program, you'll leave UW-Eau Claire with a variety of research-based practices and strategies that can be immediately applied to your own classrooms. Additionally, you'll find that a better understanding of research and evidence-based practices enable you to make data-informed decisions and enhance the learning of your students. Whether you seek new understandings, more strategic ways to facilitate student learning or the opportunity to re-envision your career, our renowned program will provide the experiences and skills necessary.
