Education Colleges and Universities
Are you a social person who loves instructing others? If so, then
getting a degree in education might be just the thing for you.
Whether you want to teach elementary school or secondary school, there is
an education school that has a program that is right for you.
A school that specializes in elementary education prepares individuals to
teach elementary school, usually kindergarten through grade 8.
People who study elementary education often choose majors such as art
education, bilingual education, math education, music education, reading,
or science education.
Much of the coursework for elementary education focuses on learning how
young people develop both physically and mentally, as well as how to
teach and manage a group of children in this age range. Generally,
elementary school teachers specialize in a particular subject, like
reading or math, though some specialize in a more general
background. There are always plenty of job openings for elementary
teachers, and the average salary is about $44,000.
Those who want to teach children of older ages may choose to attend a
school that specializes in degrees in secondary education. These
schools prepare teachers to teach in grades seven through 12, and may
include preparation to teach either a specific subject matter or a more
comprehensive curriculum. Majors include art education, bilingual
education, language education, math education, music education, remedial
and developmental reading, science education, and social studies
While a bachelor's degree in secondary education is enough to secure an
entry-level position, those looking for the best pay and job security
will often choose to get their master's degree. There are slightly
more jobs available in secondary education than there are in elementary
education, and the pay is slightly better, on average about $46,000.
