Wisconsin Univ., Milwaukee. School of Education.
The Educational Studies Major was established in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1974. It is an individualized professional education degree program leading toward a Bachelor of Science degree in education. It is an inter-disciplinary degree option for students who wish to examine and pursue careers in a vast array of educational roles other than that of the certified public school teacher. The major is especially designed to provide a professional education program for individuals currently involved in existing community-based education programs or who intend to participate in the development of alternative educational projects. Each student enrolled in the program is assigned an advisor whose area of specialization closely relates to the student's professional goals. The advisor assists the student in defining his/her major and in selecting courses, opportunities for educational experiences, and resource persons with whom to work. While the programs are individualized, all students must have learning experiences in the fine arts, humanities, natural and social sciences, and 34-credit education major which includes an inter-disciplinary education foundation, a field of specialization in education, and a field placement in a non-school setting to acquaint the student with an education role other than that of the public school teacher.
