Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (UW-Milwaukee)
This graduate certificate program offers a unique opportunity for students in any major interested in teaching in higher education to gain knowledge about teaching and learning, both generally and within their discipline. The Teaching and Learning in Higher Education Certificate is a multi-disciplinary 15 credit certificate (including current coursework in Communication, the School of Education, and other disciplines with teaching and learning courses in place) where the broad goal is to provide a foundation/n in teaching and learning theory and practice for a student in any discipline. The more specific goal of this certificate program is to bring research on teaching and learning from a variety of disciplines to bear particularly on the practices of teaching at the higher education level, and to do so in a way that would allow post-baccalaureate students either to specialize without pursuing a full graduate degree or to investigate teaching and learning as a part of a graduate program. Hence, this certificate is appropriate for graduate students (both MA and Ph.D.) who plan to teach in higher education, as well as current higher education instructors, or instructors in the community, who may want to learn more about teaching and learning in higher education.
Applicants must have completed a bachelor's degree prior to admission, must have a minimum 2.75 cumulative undergraduate grade point average, and must declare their intent to pursue the certificate before completion of six credits in the certificate sequence. Applicants with a graduate degree must have a minimum 3.00 graduate grade point average.
