The classes at University of Wisconsin Madison are quite tough. However, this refers to the introductory classes. They try to help you out with the grace of a curve but they still make you work hard. The course load is tough for a new student. It is easy to get so caught up in schoolwork that you neglect your personal life. Professors are very approachable and great with email response or in person communication. Although, it is easier to get In contact with Teaching Assistants because professors are very busy with their side work like research and publications. The class size is very intimidating. However, that is mostly for big lectures and introductory courses. It could be hard for someone to ask questions in intimidation by what others in the class are thinking. On the other hand, there are small discussion sections which allow for the one to one interaction with a Teaching Assistant.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

Wisconsin has so many interesting classes that are offered to students. Students who come in with an undecided major have the opportunity to explore different areas of study to figure out what they are interested in. The professors are very knowledgable about what they teach and are easily accessible if you need help. The workload really depends on the classes you take. Balancing your schedule will help you lessen your workload and get better grades. The popular, lower level classes tend to be in large lecture halls with a lot of students. Currently, I am taking Spanish 203 and English 100. Both of these classes have no more than 20 people. Once you start taking higher level classes for your major, the class sizes are much smaller, around thirty or so students.
