The Graduate School maintains information about staff in all graduate-degree granting departments and programs. You can use this directory to view other program's contact information. We use this directory when sending information to departmental faculty and staff. The Graduate School relies on departments/programs to keep their directory up to date. To find out who should be updating your directory, check with your admissions coordinator or program chair.

This list, called "Our Academic Programs" or "Major Areas of Study", includes all active graduate-level academic programs at UW-Madison.
