<span style="background-color: transparent;">Collegeboard.org is a great resource for this! I poured through the pages of universities all over the U.S. when I was a senior in high school. Collegeboard was my go-to site! They put all of the information in one place and it is very easy to use. They even have various filters you can apply to see only colleges that have programs you are interested. To determine academic rigor, look at the admissions requirements, G.P.A. of past admitted applicants, SAT/ACT scores, class rank etc. This will give you an idea of what scores and grades you need to be accepted. However, don't be discouraged your application will be reviewed based on the full picture! College-board will help you get an idea of what is most important to the specific school you are applying to.</span>



This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Chat with your Guidance Counselor</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Create a Collegeboard.org account</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Start using CollegeBoard as a resource to look up schools.</span>

Hey Azra! Awesome question, I'll walk through what some of my professors went through and the different avenues they became professors (I'm assuming you want to be a lecturer at a University).

Most of my professors (I'm in the engineering school) went through undergrad for the subject they wanted to teach and then did a graduate and PHD degree after. Usually during your graduate degree you have to teach sections and do labs. Even as an undergrad, you can also be a teaching assistant for professors (its a great way to see if you like being a professor). Any college is fine if you want to be a lecturer, I think its actually more important to get published and do research so that you can get into a good college to teach/lecture at.

I'm also a student in the business school and most of my professors came from industry (less common in sciences/engineering but I did have a lot of professors who worked in industry for a stint). They had great insight to how the subject they were lecturing about applied to industry which some professors have trouble with communicating if they have never been in industry.

Good luck with your search!
