Teaching Degrees in Wisconsin

The process of earning a Wisconsin teaching license is marked by many different requirements including testing and professional development. Holding a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution is an integral part of the Wisconsin teacher certification process, and a number of teaching schools in Wisconsin can provide pre-service teachers with the tools and skills they need.

The four largest schools specializing in Wisconsin teacher education are Carroll University, the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, the University of Wisconsin – Stout, and the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. Each of these schools grant teaching degrees, as well as prepare students for the rigors of earning a Wisconsin teacher license.

Carroll University

Carroll University’s education department grants degrees in elementary education, adaptive education, early childhood education, and a variety of subject-specific teaching minors. With a student body of just more than 200, the education department prides itself on small class sizes, allowing for strong teacher-student relationships. Students are required to submit to a criminal background test during their introductory education class and each academic year thereafter.

University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

The College of Education and Human Services at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (UWO) is divided into seven different departments, granting undergraduate degrees in fields such as elementary education and special education, as well as graduate degrees in curriculum and instruction and professional counseling, to name a few. With more than 2,300 students served by 200 faculty members, UWO has multiple grants, workshops, and professional development opportunities available to assist students on their way to certification.

University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point

The School of Education at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point (UWSP) has been educating teachers since 1894 and currently has more than 1,200 full-time students enrolled. The School of Education offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in elementary education, secondary education, and special education. UWSP also offers a continuing education program in education for nontraditional students returning to school after many years. Mary Fernan, a graduate of UWSP’s School of Education, is presently in the running for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, one of the highest national honors for math and science teachers.

University of Wisconsin at Stout

The University of Wisconsin Stout offers just one degree in education, a B.S. in early childhood education. All classes are taught by full-time faculty and class sizes do not exceed 25 students. Small class sizes and personalized attention from faculty allow the University of Wisconsin – Stout to provide a four-year graduation guarantee for students who meet certain academic requirements. These students work closely with university staff to set up academic plans that allow them to graduate on time.
