Are you thinking about earning a master’s degree? These programs usually require a bachelor’s degree, take one to three years to complete, and include a culminating research project, presentation, or thesis.

What is a Master in Teacher Education? For those interested in a career in K-12 education, a master’s degree is often a requirement for certification. Programs generally include coursework in child development and psychology, educational foundations and history, subject-specific methods and pedagogy, and supervised student teaching time in a school affiliated with the degree-granting institution. Some of these programs allow students to work full time as probationary teachers while doing the necessary coursework to earn their degrees.

The goal of a teacher education program is graduates who are ready to serve as classroom and subject-area leaders. Curriculum and lesson planning, materials development, assessment and evaluation, and subject-specific expertise are some of the most critical skills students can develop. Programs also emphasize organization and time management, critical to creating an effective classroom.

The cost of a master’s program will depend in part on the student’s preferred area of specialization and the way that classroom and teaching time are balanced. It’s always best to make contact with the programs that interest you and ask for details.

In an effort to provide highly qualified teachers, many school systems around the world require a master’s degree for teacher certification. This qualification allows graduates to seek employment as instructors in public or private schools and school systems. Most certifications specify an age range and the discipline for which the candidate is licensed. This degree may also open up positions as learning specialists or learning coaches within schools. Graduates may also be qualified as curriculum developers for schools, districts, or publishers.

The right Master of Teacher Education can put you on the path to a rewarding career. Programs are available through universities around the world, on campus and online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
