University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (31)
I am Panther proud! I loved every minute I experienced at UW-Milwaukee. I always had a passion to search the youth of Milwaukee and the Urban Education program provided me with the skills to do so. I encourage many of my students to consider UW-Milwaukee due to the quality of education they would gain, the inclusive and diverse community, and the price point of tuition is a sound financial investment.
If you are working toward a bachelors in Art Education I would suggest looking into other schools. During my time there, my professors were (what seemed like randomly picked out of hat) not open minded, rude, and played the Favorite game with students. If you were not there favorite or questioned what was being taught, which I did, they rudely told me to go to a different school and did not even listen to what I had to say. What school supports the watching of "The Lion King" and "Precious" as educational for art education?? and very little real life scenarios like classroom management????-UWM allowed this garbage and I learned very little about daily tasks of teaching art. I would never go back.
The Educational Policy program at UW-Milwaukee is a small program that mainly serves graduate students, although they do provide an undergraduate degree, as well. This program emphasizes issues in modern urban education and challenges students to present real solutions, particularly in the city of Milwaukee. This program is largely tailored to students who want to stay in and improve Milwaukee, so may not be the best choice for someone looking to leave immediately after attaining a degree.
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is a cultured university that makes everyone feel welcome. The campus is compact, which makes it easy to get from class to class in a short amount of time. The nursing program is rigorous and competitive, but also rewarding. There are many hospitals in the area to network with, making it easy for most students to have a job lined up before they even graduate.
UW-Milwaukee was a great program. There were a few speed bumps with the updated courses but overall very well. They took into consideration our input and I personally believed prepared us for a career outside of school. Teachers and clinical sites were exceptional.
I fairly enjoyed my time at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The program and faculty are excellent. If you don't mind snowy cold weather, UWM is the place to go to save some tuition while receiving high standard education. My only problem with the school was that the students the school accepts every year is not very competitive. I didn't meet many inspiring souls and all my friends are faculty members.
UW-Milwaukee had a very nice and simple laid out curriculum that explains exactly what classes are needed and in what order you take those classes. This was very easy to follow so you can see what classes you already took and what classes you still need to complete. During the nursing program there is a good balance between clinical time on site and class time with lecture and group projects.
I received a BA from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and went on to earn a post baccalaureate degree in German and ESL. I was very impressed with the education I received at UWM. The professors treated me like I mattered and supported me. The curriculum was flexible with traditional, hybrid and online courses. I would recommend UWM.
All core classes in the Chemistry degree with Biochem option were taught by knowledgeable professors. The quality of the TA's varied with each class but generally either they or the professor was available during office hours for any questions. I can't say the same for the Gen Ed courses required.
I can't really compare the school against others, since I didn't attend any others. I feel that I was well prepared for my career and that the school put in considerable effort to help me obtain a position in my field. There were ample opportunities in the department to work as a research assistant, and advisement services were also exceptional.
