What is a Bachelor's in Education?

A bachelor’s in education is an undergraduate degree program that can lead to a future as a teacher or education professional. It prepares you for state teaching certification, though many who wish to work in education in a non-teaching capacity often earn the degree as well. If you plan to get certified, you are required to participate in student teaching experiences. If you are not looking to teach, you can take additional pedagogy courses.

What can I do with a BS in Education?

Though the most obvious path for those with education degrees is to go into teaching, there are other career opportunities as well. Some graduates use their degrees as a stepping stone for further education to become school librarians or counselors. Others choose to support their schools in different ways, focusing on administration or curriculum design. And some find that their skills make them great fits for positions in nonprofit organizations.
