Benefits of Earning a Masters Degree in Education Online


From Licensure to Continuing Education

In all U.S. states, public school teachers must be licensed and then fulfill ongoing continuing education credits to keep their licenses current. Earning graduate credits is a way to fulfill these continuing education requirements, and it might also open doors to higher pay, diverse job choices, career advancement, and better skills as an educator. Also, in many states, a master's degree is required to teach in a public school.

Master's in Education for Licensure

If you've earned your bachelor's degree in something other than education, but now you'd like to teach, consider earning your master's in education. Through doing so, you can become a licensed teacher. If you plan to teach what you majored in as an undergraduate, many or all of your non-education courses might already be fulfilled. This might also be the case if you plan to teach your undergraduate minor. If you'd like to teach something other than your major or minor, your master's in education will provide you the opportunity to complete any necessary coursework you'll need to become licensed.

Master's in Education for Career Advancement

If you're already a licensed teacher, earning a master's in education can help you advance in your career, even if your state does not require it. Most often, teachers with master's degrees earn higher salaries than those with bachelor's degrees and the same number of years of teaching. Further, with a master's in education, you can become licensed in another field, allowing you to teach another subject, or the same subject at a different education level, or to work in a non-classroom education setting such as guidance counseling or administration.
