Best Education and Liberal Arts colleges in Utah

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.

Did you know that more than three-quarters of the students at Brigham Young University speak a second language? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encourages followers to gain the skills necessary to spread its teachings throughout the world. Being able to communicate with others in their native tongue can be extremely helpful. To that end, the school regularly offers courses in 55 different languages. (Go ahead; try to name all the ones you can think of and see how close you get to that number.) Ever hear of Quichua? A BYU linguistic professor has spent 30 years examining this 2,000-year-old language and the one million people in the world who speak dialects of it. She often leads student groups to Ecuador to study their culture. Modern, more widespread languages definitely have a place at BYU, too, and faculty continuously seek innovative teaching methods promote mastery. For instance, advanced Russian classes use video conferencing technology to conduct real-time debates with students in Moscow. Sounds like great training for future diplomats and global business leaders!
