Secondary Education Teacher Degree - Online and Campus Programs

Remember that one special teacher? Everyone has one--the teacher who took the time, made a difference, always listened, and really cared. With a secondary education teacher degree, you can be that teacher who makes a difference. Secondary education teachers work with high school and, sometimes, vocational school students. All 50 states require teachers be licensed, and most require a bachelor's degree, although states offer alternative licensing for hard-to-fill positions. Secondary education teachers work with students studying a post-elementary curriculum and often specialize in one subject, such as math or English.
