Best Education and Liberal Arts colleges in Portland

Why a degree in education and liberal arts?

Working with children roughly 200 days a year with summers and holidays off doesn’t sound half bad. Now add that you have a chance to make a difference, and it becomes an ideal job.

What education and liberal arts degree options exist?

Teachers have had it rough the past few years, but the job outlook is better than it has been in half a decade. Job satisfaction is reaching a five year high*. Primary and high school teaching jobs are expected to increase by a whopping 12% and 6%*. And lastly, the average salary among public teachers across the country has increased to $56,383*. So why not use your wisdom to impact the next generation?

Yes, there’s a good chance you will buy school supplies with your own money and work with children who don’t pay attention. But, you will also create lasting impressions on other students and have a desk filled with handmade gifts and apples. You probably won’t love every single minute, but you will probably go home at night loving that you’ve made a difference.
