SUMMARY

Studying Secondary Education and Teaching is a valuable choice and often an obligatory first step for pupils coveting to begin a career as an english language arts teacher, a math teacher, or a learning and development consultant. In fact, nationally, secondary education and teaching is fairly popular coming in at the 103rd most popular area of study. Last year, there were 3,393 secondary education and teaching degrees conferred. In-state tuition for secondary education and teaching at private colleges is, on average, 3.8 times more spendy than their public equivalents.

There are 331 universities which offer secondary education and teaching. This number of universities is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other secondary education and teaching majors, consider looking at colleges in Missouri which have more undergrads admitted to secondary education and teaching than any other state. less precisely, the top region to study secondary education and teaching is in the Southeast region with University of North Alabama, Mississippi State University, and Marshall University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study secondary education and teaching is the Southeastern Conference with The University of Alabama, Mississippi State University, and University of Missouri-Columbia representing the conference. On that topic, our belief is that the best school for secondary education and teaching is Vanderbilt University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There can be many more factors to weigh when selecting institution. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might modify your thoughts on where to go to college. Here at Authority, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which secondary education and teaching university is home to the top campus, the answer is Arizona State University-Tempe. If you are primarily interested in which university is home to the top campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and from that list, our selection for the university with the best student life for secondary education and teaching is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about our top choices. Some of our decisions might surprise you.

If cost is a significant factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Boston College. Boston College appears to be our most expensive school for secondary education and teaching, at least regarding out of state attendance. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive colleges that could put the cost of Boston College into perspective. You may also be interested to know that secondary education and teaching is the 89th most expensive major in the US, with an average bill of $40,500. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for secondary education and teaching on our list is District of Columbia with costs at the main school, American University, of $49,070. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for secondary education and teaching is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with American University with a cost of $49,070, University of Scranton with a cost of $45,390, and Villanova University with a cost of $54,550.

Our cheapest region for secondary education and teaching is the Southeast region which is represented by Louisiana State University-Shreveport with a cost of $5,656, Nicholls State University with a cost of $6,015, and College of Charleston with a cost of $70. More optimistically, the most affordable college for secondary education and teaching is University of Nevada-Reno. Authority's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $9,600 for a degree in secondary education and teaching. The cost grows substantially to a median of $22,500 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the college constituting the best value for secondary education and teaching: Northwestern University. Here you will see our comprehensive list on the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. Bear in mind, this section is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for secondary education and teaching majors can cover a wide range, but within two years finishing the degree graduates will regularly make around $45,900. There can be much variation in pay; top positions can enjoy pay up to $67,200. Even right out of college, the lowest earning positions within the secondary education and teaching space earn $30,900, which could be worse. The highest earning grads for secondary education and teaching come from Villanova University and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of secondary education and teaching is near the bottom, coming in only the 21st percentile of majors nationally. The college with the highest composite diversity for secondary education and teaching is Vanderbilt University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Secondary Education and Teaching major only ranks within the 67th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 16th percentile. White students make up the largest share, 77%, of scholars majoring in secondary education and teaching. Additionally, 63% of scholars pursuing a secondary education and teaching major are women.

The median ranking of secondary education and teaching's professors is 4 stars, a score that is right on the average score across every major; this is a fine. If you are looking for the most popular secondary education and teaching professor in the nation, look no further than Donald Hand from New Jersey City University. It might come as a shock, but the best ranked instructors for secondary education and teaching by student come from New Jersey City University. As we including data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the school with the overall best professors for secondary education and teaching is Northwestern University. One can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with some of the best instructors in the country.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for secondary education and teaching is Northwestern University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive page for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we hope you believe that considering the higher education world with context primarily formed from superlatives can create issues. We hope you look at some of our other pages on different colleges and read a few of Authority's informative background pages on useful things to look for as you continue your college search.
