Colleges - Degrees in Education

Studying for a career in education can be the next step for military personnel or their family members, thanks to the wide range of education programs available and a steady need for educators. Careers in education include teachers, managers and administrators. Teaching occupations usually focus on a certain age group, subject, or other area of specialty such as adult literacy or special education.

The educational requirements vary by occupation and also differ from state to state. Preschool teachers may need national Child Development Associate (CDA) credentials or a college degree. Public school teachers generally need a bachelor's degree in teacher education plus licensure, and postsecondary teachers often require a Ph.D.

Career outlook for education program graduates

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports the following mean annual salaries for 2009, and projected job growth for 2008 to 2018:

  • Preschool teachers: $27,450; 19 percent
  • Kindergarten Teachers: $50,380; 15 percent
  • Elementary School Teachers: $53,150; 16 percent
  • Middle School Teachers: $53,550; 15 percent
  • Secondary School Teachers: $55,150; 9 percent

There are many military education benefit programs and military friendly colleges that can help active duty personnel, veterans and their families begin an education career.
