to the School of Education

Summer Term

We are so glad you found us! Thank you for taking time out of your busy day. College campuses are overflowing with information. As a student living on a college campus, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the constant influx of information. This situation can become even more difficult and stressful when many of these pieces of information are coming from distinct sources. At some point, the tip of the bell curve is surpassed. There is simply too much information coming from too many different places, and it becomes difficult to absorb or commit to anything at all.

There is so much going on this summer in the School of Education and throughout the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We want to make sure that you feel at ease as you discover all we have to offer. We want you to be able to choose courses that speak directly to your interests and satisfy your academic needs. We created this space to serve as a central hub of information about our School of Education Summer Term courses. It was designed, organized, and built with a strong intention: to make the course searching process easier and more enjoyable for you—our students. 

Our courses are offered online, on campus, and many of them fulfill an ethnic studies requirement. If you are well-versed in the School of Education, then you already know what we’re all about. If not, that is ok! We’ve designed this space with all students in mind. We think it’s helpful to first explain that our school excels in three main areas:


Arts | Education | Health


Our school is the proud home of the Art, Dance, and Theatre & Drama departments. Classes range from photography to world dance cultures. Want to impress your abuela at that August wedding? We’ll teach you the tango. Make your own jewelry in our Metals workshop or learn how to snap the perfect photo of Lake Mendota for your Instagram. (Then make sure you tag #SoESummer). Explore your theatre interests in our scenery and costume construction studios. Go ahead. Get your art on. Learn More


Our School of Education includes more than teachers in training. Our focus extends beyond teacher education to fields such as global education, educational administration, and educational policy. We craft conversations about social justice and individualized learning throughout our programs. Learn about others. Learn about yourself. Get Educated. Learn More


Three departments ground the School of Education in physical and mental health. For example, we’ll be covering topics like marathon training and lifestyle balance. We’ll also be talking about emotional health in our substance abuse and psychology of suicide courses. As educators and learners, we understand the importance of self care, behavior change, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. Be your healthy self. Be your best self. Learn More
