Online Teaching Degrees

Teaching Degrees
For those interested in a purposeful, fulfilling career, teaching could hardly be a better choice -- especially for those who enjoy helping others. While the idea of a teaching career might bring to mind a roomful of young children, the truth is that a teaching degree can take you much further than an elementary school classroom. A teaching degree program could lead you to a career in a middle school, high school, or even postsecondary teaching. Training in this field can also help you in a professional environment, as many corporations hire their own internal trainers.

Teaching Programs: What Is Involved?
Training programs for those interested in teaching will vary widely depending on the goal and range from bachelor's degrees qualifying you for a job as an elementary school teacher to master's and doctoral programs. Typical coursework will typically combine self-paced study with collaborative work and many programs will require access to a classroom to complete student teaching assignments. Most training programs are career-oriented and will prepare you for a career in your chosen area of expertise, whether as a K-8 teacher with a math emphasis or a job in administration leadership.

Job Outlook Is Bright For Teachers
If you are interested in a job teaching the outlook is quite good. In fact, a number of teaching occupations are among those predicted by the U.S. Department of Labor to have the largest numerical job growth in the next several years. Earnings potential will depend again on your chosen career path. For example, the median salary in 2004 for postsecondary teachers was $51,800 and for K-8 pay ranged from $41,400 to $45,920. For most teaching positions job growth is expected to increase steadily if not faster than average.
