Online Bachelor's in Education Programs
Online bachelor's degree programs in education are relatively rare, probably because they often require a student-teaching component in a brick-and-mortar school, which can be difficult to coordinate with an online institution that may be hundreds of miles away. If you're considering an online bachelor's program, ask about the student-teaching component. Will the school arrange it for you, or is that responsibility left up to you?
If you've completed some work toward a bachelor's degree already, or if you've taken courses at a community college, some of those credits may transfer toward an online bachelor's degree in education. Check on the status of your existing credits with any institution you are considering.
Before enrolling in any online degree program, you'll want to do your research, both on the school's overall academic reputation, and on whether it's a good fit for you. If you know you learn best in a classroom setting, then a traditional degree program might be a better fit. But if convenience is a priority, and you work well in situations that require you to be self-motivated, then an online bachelor's in education program might be up your alley.
An online bachelor's degree in education is a big commitment, often taking several years to complete and costing thousands of dollars. Make sure you know the reputation of the schools you're considering. Many online programs are still establishing their reputations, so check with people you trust, such as teachers you know who've enrolled in such programs. Ask them whether they think the programs you're considering will help you to reach your professional goals.
Where Will I be Able to Teach After I Get my Bachelors?
You should make sure to talk to the schools about which state(s) you will be certified to teach in after you complete your Bachelors in Education there. Many states have what are called "reciprocity agreements" with other states, which means that if you are certified to teach in State #1, then State #2 will allow you to teach there as well, without having to go through another, different certification process. The schools and the state Departments of Education can give you more information on this.
