Summer Term

We are so glad you found us! College campuses are overflowing with information.

There is so much going on this summer in the School of Education and throughout the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 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 Summer 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 and on campus, and many of them fulfill general graduation requirements. 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 the three areas below.


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
