There is no better time to explore a graduate program at UWM!

UWM has been classified as an R1 research institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, a rating given to only 130 of the 4,338 universities evaluated. UWM is one of only two universities in Wisconsin that received the rating.

We continue to grow in size and stature, with outstanding faculty in our more than 135 graduate programs in a broad variety of fields. Our distinguished professors are recognized for making a profound impact on their respective fields and creating a vibrant research community in which they mentor the next generation of master’s and doctoral scholars.

Take a graduate school tour where you will explore all the campus has to offer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UWM is currently offering limited in-person campus tours along with a virtual visit option; explore our Virtual Tour option at the bottom of this page.

*We are excited to resume our in-person Milwaukee campus tours! It is incredibly important to us that we do so safely and our tour groups will be capped at 5 people. UWM has updated its interim COVID-19 health and safety rules:

  • Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face coverings in UWM facilities or outdoors.
  • Unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear face coverings while in UWM facilities.
  • Social distancing is encouraged when possible, but not required. Individuals are encouraged to remain at least 6 feet apart in shared, indoor spaces.

You will receive more information when your tour registration is confirmed.

It is necessary to register in advance, and because tours are limited, we are not allowing walk-ins or additional guests on the Graduate School tour at this time.
