North Carolina Masters in Education Programs
(found programs from 31 schools)
The education field is one of North Carolina's fastest-growing sectors, with more than 7,000 job openings each year. That includes 1,700 elementary teaching positions, 1,000 high school teaching positions, 900 middle school teaching positions, and 400 special education teaching positions.
The financial rewards for teachers with a master's degree are considerable, and they increase over time. Beginning teachers with a master's degree earn $3,000 per year more than their colleagues who possess only a bachelor's. Over time, that increases to $5,000 extra per year for teachers with master's degrees, according to the Department of Public Instruction in North Carolina.
