Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is specified with four areas, and each area has diverse research directions. The professors and faculties are really nice and helpful. Maybe more internships should have during the class.

The quality of the education and research facilities is outstanding. UW Madison is in the top 5 most funded schools so there is money and facilities (as well as the talent) needed to do just about any research. As far as graduate programs go, it's intensive but very rich. The only drawback is Madison, WI itself. While it is a fun city, it's rather small and gets smaller the longer you live there. There is nothing outside of Madison worth seeing except for Milwaukee (1.5 hrs east) or Chicago (2 hrs east). There are fun things to do, and if you really like craft beer and nice food, it's paradise. However, it's not exactly a "city", so anyone coming from an urban area might have a bit of culture shock.

While this program is not very diverse, the faculty are making efforts to recruit more students and faculty from diverse backgrounds. There is insufficient understanding of training resources and methods regarding working with diverse clients in the field of educational psychology. Some areas within the department conduct a great deal of research, while others barely conduct research.
