Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

Some great faculty, but many of them aren't available to provide comprehensive guidance to grad students. Excessive TA workloads.

UW Madison history department offers a competitive PhD in a variable market. Their financial packages vary by field and professor, but the department is currently undergoing a financial overhaul to offer better financial packages to students. Overall I am glad I came to Wisconsin. Good luck embracing the winters!

The program has an excellent education quality and drawbacks can go unnoticed. However, it would be important to increase the resources for students who belong to ethnic minorities, as well as international students.

Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Wisconsin Madison's History Department does an excellent job adapting to students needs in the program, while also tracking their students toward career goals and providing them with a support network to accomplish their aims.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2018

As a first year, in my third week of school, I have very little with what to compare my experience. However, the University of Wisconsin has so far been acceptable. All that see of all cons are a reflection of the small and demographics of the city rather than disadvantages of the program per se.
