Education is one of the largest industries within the United States. In addition to teaching, various jobs exist for people desiring to work in this field. The following are specialties available at many universities offering online master’s of education degrees:
- Technology and curriculum
- Special education
- Adult and distance education
- School administration
Many entry-level teaching jobs are available for people with bachelor’s degrees, but those wanting to work in administration and curriculum development are usually required to possess a master’s degree.
People enrolled in online master’s degree programs will have the opportunity to interact with similar people sharing a passion for education and wise instructors possessing extensive work experience. Students enrolled in online programs can communicate with their classmates and instructors via online chatrooms, complete courses at their convenience, and re-watch confusing lecture material. Students pursuing school administration careers will be required to complete courses in community relations, lesson development, budgeting, finance, and various education courses.
Steady job growth has been projected through the foreseeable future for school administrator positions. A majority of these opportunities will be available at colleges and universities. In 2010, the median salary for school administrators was over $80,000 a year.
