Online teaching degrees and online teaching certificates are now very common because they offer you the opportunity to begin or enhance your education career while continuing to work. For example, using online education to earn your Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE) with a Concentration in Elementary Teaching allows you to work during the day – perhaps in a related job like daycare – and study elementary education in the evening. 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.
Earning your degree in teaching can mean finding a more lucrative and enjoyable job. You can choose from many different on-campus and online teaching degrees, but some of the more common programs – and the jobs they can lead you to – include:
- Associate of Arts (AA) in Elementary Education – You can earn your AA in Elementary Education with two years of full-time study. This degree typically qualifies you for entry-level positions as an educational assistant, but most of those who acquire it go on to study for their bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution.
- Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) in Secondary Education – Usually requiring four, but occasionally five years of full-time study, a BA in Secondary Education is the standard degree for middle and high school teachers.
- Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) – Requiring between one and two years of postgraduate study, an MLIS degree qualifies you to work as a professional librarian. Specific concentrations include academic librarianship, archiving, information architecture, public librarianship and school (K-12) librarianship.
