What college electives would be beneficial to me if I want to be a post-secondary teacher?
I aspire to be a college professor, which I realized requires much dedication and time, all that I am willing to put in. I want to know what electives I should take or perhaps campus jobs that would help prepare me for this career. #professor #jobs #electives #teaching #university-teaching #post-secondary #higher-education #college
Lauren recommends the following next steps:
Specific upper level course in you undergrad to your desired field of education. Do really well. Then find a masters program and further specialize in desired area of instruction. Then find a PhD program (hopefully one with a teaching load and scholarship) and you'll be on your way. Maintain excellent lines of communication with all professors in your field for mentoring and networking down the road. This is critical.
