Get Your Online Teaching Degree

The College Teacher Salaries Table will help you find the online teaching degree salary for different postsecondary teacher jobs.

Teaching students after they graduate from high school (postsecondary level) is a worthy goal. This goal is easily achievable once you get a bachelor degree, online or otherwise.

For trade-school teachers a bachelor degree is the minimum level of education required, with a Masters degree or PhD preferred.

For teachers at the community college level a Masters degree is required and a PhD (doctorate) is preferred.

Most four-year and above level colleges require their teachers to have a PhD.

Regardless of the level of student you want to teach to, you must begin at the lower level and build up to your ultimate goal. There are also benefits beyond pay in the postsecondary teaching profession.

If you want to get recognition, write books, join in the faculty lifestyle, get a sense of community, or help others and make friends, this may be your niche!

You can get paid for a specialty, as noted in the table to the right, while you meet your other objectives.
