Fulfilling the promise of “The Wisconsin Idea”—the philosophy that University of Wisconsin education and research initiatives should benefit all the people of the state—UW-Extension provides statewide access to university resources and research so Wisconsin residents can learn, grow, and succeed at all stages of life. The Division of Continuing Education, Outreach, and E-Learning (CEOEL) coordinates University of Wisconsin continuing education programs at all 26 campuses. Included in these are online degree completion programs and master’s degree programs such as the Master of Science in Data Science which enable more adults to earn a world-class UW education.
Graduates of our online programs earn the very same University of Wisconsin degrees as students who attend classes on campus. As a graduate, you can feel proud and confident knowing that your credential is recognized the world over and respected by employers.
