Nowadays the more degrees the better! I would say depending on what field you want to go into a least a bachelors degree is necessary!

I see that you have the teaching hashtag which is excellent. I think it would be good to know what level you want to teach in regards to the level. Alot of places would ask for a bachelors as a requirement which has been recommended. What I would also recommend is have the bachelors be in a focus to what you want to teach. (For example, Major in education with a focus in english). Also if you are wanting to pursue teaching in college if may be different. So a far as what has been provided definitely pursuing a bachelors degree in education.

Hi Matthew,

It will depend on two things: what you want to do and what your natural skills and talents are? There are some fields where higher education is required - like law or medicine. Otherwise there is flexibility although in most industries a college degree can be a competitive advantage.

Melanie’s Answer

I agree with the previous answer that at least a bachelor's career is needed. It also very much depends on the field that you want to work in. If you are looking for a blue collar job, a 9 month to 2 year diploma may be enough, if you want to be a leading edge scientist, then a PHD might make more sense. Overall, for office jobs, bachelors up to master should enable your success. Generally speaking a masters is better, but I've seen people with only bachelor get pretty high up. Still. a master degree might make those promotions easier to come by.

Alba’s Answer

Obtain an Education degree for sure. And maybe later look for options to specialize in what you like the most. i.e. special ed.
Remember the more Certifications the better for you and your future.

Aastha’s Answer

Hey! I agree that it definitely depends on what level you wish to teach in. I suggest talking to maybe different levels of professionals in the field to see how they got started, or what they would have done differently.

Elizabeth’s Answer

It looks as though you want to be a teacher. You probably have an age that you would like to teach and a subject in mind also that you would like to teach. If you are teaching in an elementary school you'll need a Bachelors9. With teaching it is important to get into a school district that you like. It is not always easy to switch schools. So what I would do would be to look at some of the schools that you would like to be teaching at and find out what the credentials are at those particular locations. One math teacher in one school district will not necessarily make the same as another math teacher elsewhere. Private schools will have completely different credentials required. For example at my daughter's school her math teacher is actually an engineer with no teaching degree. Her science teacher previously had worked in a lab. Her Chinese teacher was a physician. That is another thing you may want to consider if you want to work in a public school or private school . Pay and the benefits differ. There are two ways that you can teach one way is to get a bachelor's in teaching such as a bachelor's in elementary education and another way is to get a degree in any subject that you want to teach and also get a certificate. With the second method you have a degree and then you add on the ability to teach. I looked into this to make extra money back when I was in college. The schools in my area were in need of substitute teachers all the time . Especially in biology . It takes about a year to go back and get that certificate but if you do it simultaneously while you're getting your bachelors you could complete your bachelor's and your certificate at the same time.
