Education

What is an education degree?

Education is about teaching, learning skills and knowledge. It also means helping people to learn how to do things and support them to think about what they learn. It's also important for educators to teach ways to find and use information.

Through education, the knowledge of society, the country, and of the world is passed on from generation to generation. This may include education in morality, for example, learning how to act as loyal, honest and effective citizens

Education may help and guide individuals from one class to another. Educated individuals and groups can do things that help less educated people.

Studying for a degree in education will provide you with life-long skills. Skills that can be used in hundreds of careers aside from the usual teaching positions in schools, colleges and universities. 

Fields and career paths of Education

Education Administration

Curriculum Design

Student Counseling

Education Administration

Perhaps the most obvious alternative is to work within the school system as part of its leadership. Administrators help set school policies and goals, represent the school in the community, manage staff, oversee disciplinary actions, allocate resources, and handle a myriad of day-to-day operations. While most administrators begin as teachers, top positions may require a master’s degree.

Curriculum Design

For those who prefer to create a teaching plan rather than teach it, curriculum design may be an excellent choice. Curriculum design professionals develop educational programs and instructional materials for schools, organizations, and companies. They usually have a deep understanding of a particular subject, as well as extensive knowledge of teaching theory and technique. A related field is standardized testing, which involves creating, implementing, and assessing the results of examinations ranging from achievement tests to college admission tests.

Student Counseling

Young people face challenges both inside and outside the classroom. They need guidance on personal issues and major life decisions, like picking a college or career. Counseling positions are ideal for education graduates who value the interpersonal connection of working with students with a preference for a one-on-one contact. An Education degree is an excellent starting point for the following careers, although many do require additional training.

Education Policy and Research

Writing and Publishing

Adult Education and Mentoring

Education Policy and Research

How should children be taught? What should they be taught, and by whom? Education policymakers try to answer these questions. They develop and implement practices and policies that aim to better the education system. Their decisions are based on extensive education research, through testing policies and practices to assess their efficacy. Both policymakers and researchers are generally seasoned experts with teaching backgrounds.

 

Writing and Publishing

For Education graduates with a passion for writing, a career in writing or publishing could be perfect. In particular, the world of textbook publishing offers a wide array of opportunities, whether in editing or sales. There are positions at media outlets for reporters who specialize in education topics, as well as an increasing number of successful education bloggers.

Adult Education and Mentoring

Education is a lifelong pursuit. While teaching at the college or university level requires an advanced degree, adult education typically does not. Although the pay may be low, adult educators generally find their careers to be extremely personally rewarding. In addition, life coaching is a rapidly growing field that may interest educators who enjoy motivating other people.
