Teaching and Education Degrees

For many people, education is a calling. The opportunities to learn are dynamic and abundant, compelling interest from people of all fields, backgrounds, and education levels. Students, however, are not the only learners. Educators continually strive to enhance their knowledge and skill set. Education methodology, policy, management, pedagogy, and technology create an ever-evolving landscape and thus a need for teachers and administrators to stay current with the latest changes.

While things such as tuition, faculty expertise, financial aid, and academic reputation all play an important part in the search for the right school, flexibility and accessibility can also be top factors in the decision process. Many of today’s learners need flexible academic options that will allow them to keep their jobs while they earn a degree. As a result, many major universities, small private colleges and even community colleges have developed components or entire degree programs that can be completed online.

Online Teaching and Education Degrees

Online programs in education give students the opportunity to take academic coursework online, for example, classes in educational psychology or research methods. Professors assign coursework through a course management system, and students complete and submit assignments through the system. Online schools utilize audio and video presentations, chat rooms or forums, Skype and webinars for instruction and communication purposes, allowing students to interact with professors and classmates. Online students gain exposure to the use of technology in teaching.

Because student teaching is a requirement for teacher certification, some online programs in education use a hybrid model of delivery, combining Web-based study, on-campus instruction, and observation and experience in the field. Online graduate degrees in education may be particularly appropriate for teachers pursuing studies while balancing work responsibilities.

Teaching and Education Program Highlights

Technology has begun to positively influence—and change—the classroom experience for both students and educators. Online degree programs in teaching offer an array of academic options, from certifications to undergraduate and graduate degrees, to help facilitate training and advancement of teachers and administrators. Distance degree programs place courses at the fingertips of students who, for a number of reasons, may not be able to attend a traditional campus college.

With so many options, however, extensive research is required for prospective students to find their optimal post-secondary educational program. There are many teaching programs that offer online opportunities for distance learners. So which is right for you? This guide examines the different types of degrees available online within the field of teaching, how these degrees map to careers, and which degree programs are the best match for specific goals.

However, before diving deeper into the details, below is a list of 10 teaching degree programs for an idea of what is currently available:

SPOTLIGHT INTERVIEW

Name: DAWN H.

Degree: MASTER’S DEGREE IN EDUCATION – READING SPECIALTY

Mode: Online

What has been the biggest benefit of distance learning at your college?

I can take graduate-level classes and I am not limited by time or location. I can work on my classes anytime of the day or night. This is especially helpful when working full time and having children at home. I can work full-time and still be home for my son when he gets home from school, and I can wait until he goes to bed to work on my classes. I live out of town and love the flexibility of taking classes online instead of having to drive to classes several time per week.

What role has technology played in your online program and courses?

The flexibility of the online format is great. I am able to read lectures, communicate with classmates and professors, and do my coursework at any time during the day or night. I can get the information more efficiently without having to sit through lectures. I am a rather shy person and in a regular classroom format I would be less likely to speak in front of others but I don’t have that problem online. I am able to communicate very well with my professors and classmates because all of our comments are posted on the discussion boards and all of our “voices” were heard. It’s easy to ask questions and get feedback from my professor using messaging on blackboard as well as email.

How does your online program help prepare you for a career after graduation?

I have to be a self-starter and be able to monitor my own time and learning. I have to make sure I kept up with what assignments were due and when they were due. This is a very valuable skill to have in the field of education with the multiple tasks that are assigned to educators on a daily basis. Not only have I learned a lot about the theories of literacy instruction, I have gotten a lot of practical ideas that I can use to enhance my teaching and abilities as a literacy coach to other teachers. I now have a firm grasp on my philosophy and methods of teaching reading and writing. I believe that I am very well prepared for a career as a reading specialist and literacy leader in schools.

Online Associate Degrees in Teaching and Education

An online associate degree in teaching or education can take two years to complete and may offer specializations in early childhood or elementary education. Upon completion of the program, students may be eligible to apply for a CDA (Child Development Associates) Credential. At this level, online programs offer basic knowledge in teaching and working with infants, toddlers, pre-school, and kindergarten students. Program curriculum combines general education with fundamental courses in education and instruction methods. Since a bachelor’s degree is typically the minimum requirement for employment, this degree option serves to build the foundation for a four-year degree program.

The table below describes several of the courses offered in an associate degree in education program:

COURSE NAME overview
Intro to Early Childhood Education Overview of early childhood development. Government standards and regulations, historical perspectives and current trends.

Online Master’s Degrees in Teaching and Education

Experienced teachers who want to take their career to the next level can choose to pursue an online master’s degree in teaching. This degree helps students enhance their current education and teaching knowledge as well as develop more specialized skills. Master’s teaching programs usually offer various specialization areas, such as multiple subject teaching or individual subject teaching. Students also explore the latest developments in pedagogy and instructional technology so that they can create classrooms that are not only highly academic, but also engaging.

While much of the coursework for a teaching master’s degree can be completed online, it is important to note that a majority of quality degree programs will require hands-on, fieldwork experience. This is an important part of teacher curriculum as it allows students to take what they have learned and apply it to everyday, real world classroom challenges. Additionally, such experience is often necessary to earn a teaching credential.

Below are some of the courses possible in a master’s program, although the curriculum can vary considerably.

MASTER’S PROGRAM CORE COURSES OVERVIEW
Contemporary Issues in Education Viewpoints on contemporary issues and trends in education theory and practice. School and national education perspective.

Online Doctorate Degrees in Teaching and Education

The most advanced education degree is a doctorate, for example, the PhD in Education or Doctor of Education (Ed.D or D.Ed). Students choose an area of concentration within the discipline of education, such as policy, leadership, human development or research. To enroll in a doctoral program, students need a bachelor’s and master’s degree in a related field. Most programs require students to submit and defend a dissertation. It typically takes at least four years to complete a doctoral program, although this varies if students are teaching part-time or working as a graduate research assistant.

Core classes could include organizational leadership, qualitative research methods and educational policy. However, the curriculum is shaped by the student’s choice of concentration. University professors hold a doctorate in their specialty, whether it’s Spanish or economics, and a doctorate in education is typically required to teach education-related courses at the postsecondary level. Educators with a PhD often spend time on scholarly research and publishing in addition to, or instead of, classroom instruction. School administrators such as district superintendents often have doctoral degrees. Other potential positions span nonprofit organizations and the federal government.
