Careers in Education: Making Your Mark in the Classroom and Beyond

Education Jobs Come in All Shapes and Sizes
Through their work, educators enable students to grow as individuals and citizens. They help people gain the knowledge they need to be productive members of society, to support themselves and their families, and to engage with the world as critical thinkers. But not all education careers are alike. Some individuals with education degrees become teachers, educating children from pre-kindergarten through high school. Special education teachers focus specifically on teaching young people with learning challenges. Other teachers work in higher education, teaching at the college or university level. Others work with adults in continuing education programs outside formal college or university settings.

Education Not Just for Teachers
While teaching is one of the most popular options for individuals with education degrees, education administration--overseeing schools and setting school policies--is another career path within the field. Still others choose careers in education technology, developing online education programs, or curriculum development, helping set standards for instruction across schools. Whatever specific career path you choose within education, the field is richly rewarding for anyone looking to make a difference.
