Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The program of Urban studies and education provided me as an educator in an urban area to better analyze education in the urban settings.This was especially true, when working with minorities such as Latino immigrants and first generation of immigrants. This program provides a good overview of the issues faced by inner-city schools. one of the aspect to improve is perhaps the lack of networking with leaders in the community who cam play an important role in accessing resources to children in urban areas.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I chose the Administrative Leadership with an emphasis in Higher Education at UWM because of the flexibility to complete the program online or in person. My advisor has been easily accessible and internship or development opportunities are passed along frequently. Overall, it seems this program will fit with my full-time work schedule and balance of family life.

This is a great program for both students looking to further their education and the night classes work great for professionals looking to take that next step.

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

Graduate school is very affordable for in-state students and the teachers are very thorough in their lectures. One can expect to learn a lot. Also the location of the school is great; students get to experience the city life and great things Milwaukee has to offer.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

I like the economics graduate program at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee mainly for its small class size and exceptional support from faculty members. The only con of the program is that funding is limited to 4 years and there is very limited funding for the summer.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee for a PhD in Economics. The education and faculty are superb, truly world class experts in everything from monetary theory to health economics and more. I feel the program is exemplary and sorely under rated. However, the University of Wisconsin is currently in a budget crisis. The state is attempting to cut 300 million dollars from the state higher education budget. The majority of these cuts are falling on the research campuses such as UW Milwaukee. These cuts can be felt everywhere as student services and opportunities for funding dry up, faculty leave because of better pay at other institutions and general feeling of panic falls the department. I myself will not be offered funding along with the rest of my cohort because of this.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: fairly easy access to campus if you do not live on campus Cons: weak support on the financial aids - affected by recent recession
2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

The career support is not equal across the campus and lacking in funding and scholarships for some higher educational programs. The pros is that there are moral support from faculty members from other programs.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2013

The perfect program for my career goals. The faculty was open and constantly around, active in their research and that of their students. Course work lighter when compared to some other universities, but the program offers the student to follow a particular research path of their own creation and passion.
