Teaching and Education Schools, Online Degrees and Programs

America's teachers and education administrators hold the nation's future in their hands. Teachers and administrators typically earn an undergraduate degree in their academic field of interest, and then go on to teaching school or online graduate school to earn their certifications or degrees required to enter the classroom. Teachers can specialize in special education, early childhood education, instructional design, or adult education. They may choose to enroll in an online education and teaching degree program at the post-graduate level to prepare for work as a school or district administrator.
