A master’s degree is the culmination of a graduate program and qualifies recent graduates to distinguish themselves as an expert in their chosen field. It can also give them the stepping stones they need to pursue their doctorate’s degree.

What is an MA in Elementary Education? It’s a graduate degree that gives students the tools and education they need to enter the workforce in the field of education or improves on a teacher’s existing bachelor’s degree in teaching. Students with this degree should have a thorough understanding of pedagogy and how to be an effective educator. Required coursework in an elementary education program may include mathematics content, effective teaching practices, research, foundations of teaching, instructional planning and presentation, and elementary education methods.

An elementary education degree should prepare graduates for the workforce. Students should also expect to improve their communication, planning, organizational and leadership skills, which can make them an ideal candidate for a teaching position.

When researching schools, students should also explore program costs. They should also know if they can commit to a full or part-time schedule, as that can affect their tuition.  

Graduates with an elementary education degree should be able to find work as a teacher in K-12 classrooms in public or private schools. They may also be able to find work as trainers, curriculum coordinators, or preschool teachers. There are also corporations looking for trainers and planners for those with teaching degrees and experience if a traditional classroom isn’t the right career fit. With time on the job and additional coursework, elementary education graduates should see a significant increase in their earning potential, particularly if they take on additional classroom responsibilities or wish to work as an administrator.

Interested students can find degree programs at schools worldwide. Online programs are great options for those who work full time or cannot commit to a traditional college schedule. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
