Online Education (General) Degrees and Careers


Earning your education degree can open the door to employment in any number of educational tracks. From working as a kindergarten teacher to handling a class full of college students, the teaching opportunities in your future begin with a degree in education.

Most teachers in the public school system must hold bachelor's degrees in education and earn their licenses to teach before they can be in charge of a classroom. Private schools don't always require licensing for teachers. Some states offer alternative licensing programs for those who have expertise in a particular area; in this case, a different type of degree might be acceptable.
