Say goodbye to winter -- and hello to Summer Term

March 17, 2017

UW-Madison’s Summer Term is a great opportunity to get ahead in one’s studies or stay on track for graduation -– while still leaving time to savor the best of summer.

The School of Education is a campus leader in offering Summer Term classes, and in 2017 is making available more than 125 unique courses, including many that are online.

Visit the School of Education’s Summer Term website and check out the range of courses available that speak directly to students’ interests and satisfy their academic needs. This website serves as a central hub of information and was designed, organized and built to make the course searching process easier and more informative for all students. 

Summer Term 2017Summer Term is a convenient time for students to earn the grades and credits they need to get into a particular area of study, or to get into graduate school.

And for students who are unable to make it to campus, the School of Education is adding 10 new summer online courses, and features 29 online classes in all.  Among these offerings are both required courses that students can take to advance their academic program during the summer, such as Human Development (Educational Psychology 320 and 321), summer friendly courses that allow students to tap into their creativity, such as Videogames and Learning (Curriculum and Instruction 277), and multiple offerings through the Art and Dance departments.

Summer Term enrollment begins March 27.

UW-Madison is increasing scholarship funding for summer 2017. Last year 225 undergraduate students received scholarships, and this year the university hopes to boost that number to 400. The application period runs March 1 to April 4, and it’s easy to apply.

The highly ranked School of Education excels in three main areas, which is reflected in its Summer Term offerings in: 

Arts -- The School of Education is the proud home of the Art, Dance, and Theatre & Drama departments. Classes range from photography and graphic design, to theatre production and world dance cultures, among many others.

Education -- The School of Education includes more than teacher education, with its focus extending to fields such as global education, educational leadership, educational psychology and educational policy. The School crafts conversations about social justice and individualized learning throughout its programs.

Health -- Three departments –- Counseling Psychology, Kinesiology, and Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education -– ground the School of Education in physical and mental health. Summer Term classes cover topics like marathon training and lifestyle balance. The School also examines emotional health in its substance abuse and psychology of suicide courses. As educators and learners, the School of Education understands the importance of self care, behavior change and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.

Summer Term offerings include both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in every department across the School of Education.
