The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee School of Education is an academic division of the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. It offers five undergraduate major, five master's, and 12 doctoral programs. It also offers the only four-year interpreter training degree in Wisconsin.
The School of Education’s history is intertwined with the history of UWM. The school’s predecessor, Milwaukee Normal School, opened in 1885 to train teachers in downtown Milwaukee at 18th Street and Wells Avenue. In 1909, the Normal School moved to its new location, the Milwaukee Normal School Building (today’s Mitchell Hall on the UWM campus). The Normal School became Milwaukee State Teachers College, offering four-year degrees. In 1951, Milwaukee State Teachers College became Wisconsin State College (WSC), Milwaukee, with liberal arts degrees. WSC merged with UW Milwaukee Extension to form UWM.
