Post-Secondary/Higher Education Teaching
Postsecondary teachers educate students in diverse academic subjects and vocational areas that extend beyond the high school level. Teaching positions in colleges and universities require a PhD, and at minimum, a master’s degree for a community college. Aside from teaching, they also conduct research and publish academically. The education requirements vary with the subject taught and the type of academic institution. In additional to a degree, work experience may be important for obtaining a teaching position in a technical or trade school.
