Earn Your Doctorate or PhD in Early Childhood Education Online

A certificate or Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Education can qualify you for a position in a preschool or daycare center, while a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Education – Early Childhood Education prepares you to teach in public or private elementary schools.  A Master of Education (MEd) in Early Childhood Education or PhD in Early Childhood Education can lead you into administration, research and policy development work.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates about 17% job growth for early childhood educators through 2022 – a pace that is on par with all professions. Applicants with internships, related work experience, and advanced degrees should have the best employment opportunities.

The Benefits of Online Degree Programs

Online teaching degrees and graduate level teaching certificates are now very common because they offer you the opportunity to enhance your education while continuing to work. Online classes allow students to schedule courses around their family life and work schedule.

Acquiring your teaching degree online can increase your job security as well; when the unemployment rate reached 6.7% in November 2008, the rate for people holding a bachelor’s degree or higher was only 3.1% – less than half the national average.
