Masters Teaching Programs

In order to teach in public schools in the US, you need to have passed a suitable program of study and obtained teacher certification (licensure).  There are various specifically designed masters programs to help you, such as those on this page.  If you already have a bachelor’s degree in another field, you can take one of the masters teaching programs that satisfy licensing requirements.  In this way you obtain your teaching license and also enhance your career prospects by having the higher degree.  If you want to move into administration, you might also want to look at the Administration and Leadership page for details of suitable masters programs.

Masters teaching programs are an excellent way to qualify for a teaching career, obtain the best jobs and get promotion.  This page gives details of the programs and where they can be found.
