Preparing teachers for more than 150 years  

UW-Platteville has been preparing teachers since the state’s first Normal School was established in 1866. The School of Education takes great pride in this long-standing tradition and is committed to providing quality educational offerings and programs.

Our degree programs focus on building a teaching workforce responsive to the needs of their community. Students will have multiple opportunities to apply the skills they learn on campus within local school systems. While our placed-based education focuses on the unique needs of rural communities, the skills and strategies our graduates acquire will transferable to whatever community they may find themselves. This connection of pedagogy and practice is a cornerstone of our program.
