New Jersey Masters in Education Programs

(found programs from 21 schools)

Garden State educators are some of the best-paid in the country, with average salaries of more than $60,000 per year. But cost of living in the state is high, and salaries vary by district - pay can differ by nearly $20,000 a year in districts whose boundaries touch one another. Teachers with a master's degree typically earn at least $3,200 more per year than those with a bachelor's degree, according to the State of New Jersey Department of Education.

Nearly 40 percent of teachers in the state have a master's degree, and the median salary for those teachers is around $66,000 a year. Again, that's high compared to other teachers around the country, but it's still lower than what most people with master's degrees make in New Jersey.
