Vs. National Avg.
Middle school education and teaching is the 144th most popular degree in America, with 2,184 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #145 Biological and Physical Sciences, and narrowly lost to #143 Foreign Languages and Literatures.
The degree is offered at a total of 291 colleges across the nation, and is the 75th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 3% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 51% of colleges offering middle school education and teaching are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The southeast produces the most middle school education and teaching graduates, largely led by Western Carolina University, while it’s the Mid-American Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Ohio ranks highest, with particular help from Bowling Green State University-Main Campus and Kent State University at Kent.
All that being said, no individual school produces more middle school education and teaching graduates than Arkansas State University-Beebe, which graduated 100 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study middle school education and teaching). More students studied middle school education and teaching as a percentage of total students at Ohio State University-Mansfield Campus than any other college.
