Strengths build on one another at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate School.
World-class education combines with a powerful research engine and talented people at UW-Madison to create an engaged community of scholars uncovering new knowledge.
Our mission to advance knowledge through education and research has never been more critical, as we face a competitive global marketplace. Our graduates are well prepared for a world that is diverse, global and interconnected. They are equipped to be thought leaders and to make discoveries and solve problems that build a brighter future for everyone.
Our tradition at UW-Madison has been to integrate quality graduate education with one of the world’s most potent research enterprises. Our philosophy is that graduate education is strongest when it is combined with a meaningful, deep and varied research experience.
Our more than 9,000 graduate students have access to a $1 billion research enterprise, making UW-Madison one of the nation’s leading research institutions. We also offer a faculty with international reputations and graduate education programs ranked highly by the National Research Council.
The Graduate School is also home to a variety of multidisciplinary centers and institutes that generate research funding of more than $170 million each year. They involve faculty, staff and students from the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities.
People are the foundation of our success. We deeply believe in nurturing the quality of mentorship and the strength of student-faculty relationships. We are also committed to building an intellectually and culturally diverse and vibrant community of scholars.
Another respected tradition at UW-Madison is the Wisconsin Idea – the century-old principle that the university should improve people’s lives beyond the classroom and the laboratory. It is a way to extend and enrich the intellectual experience through hands-on problem solving.
Together, these strengths – and more – combine at the Graduate School. They provide the opportunity to thrive, to grow and to advance knowledge in a setting admired worldwide.
