If you are considering an advanced degree and trying to find the right Graduate School fit for you, come to UWM to meet with faculty and staff from our more than 150 master’s, doctoral and graduate certificates – both online and on-campus – during our 11th annual Graduate School Open House. You’ll be able to obtain an overview of our programs, ask questions about the admissions process and discover financial aid benefits that are available. Snacks will be served.

This is an exciting time for the UWM community – come take a look! UWM was classified as an R1 research institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. This means that UWM is at the highest level of research activity possible; a rating that was given to only 146 of the nearly 4,000 universities evaluated. UWM is one of only two universities in Wisconsin that received the rating.

To check out all of our programs that will be represented at the open house, see Programs in our academic catalog.
