Refer to the UW-Madison Guide for degree requirements.
A student may apply up to 14 credits of prior course work to meet PMP requirements and must complete at least 16 credits in the PMP (to meet the current residency requirement).
Coursework in Other Departments
Students enrolled in the Professional Master’s Program are not allowed to enroll in courses in other departments. Exceptions need to be approved by a faculty advisor.
At the start of the program and each semester thereafter, students will need to submit a tentative plan of study to be approved by their assigned faculty advisor. Students are welcome to meet with their assigned faculty advisor to further discuss their program plan of study.
PMP courses are offered Monday Through Friday between the hours of 8am and 5pm. Currently we do not offer online courses, all courses are offered in person at UW-Madison during the traditional working day.
Internships are not required. However, students can earn credits for internships that are directly related to their degree. International students may be qualified for internships after completing two consecutive semesters of in-person instruction. International students must also complete a CPT request – information can be found here. Students may not do an internship and take on an assistantship within the same term. Be aware that assistantship contracts begin August 21, 2023.
