Career as Professor


In the simplest terms, professors are college and university level instructors who typically have their doctorate level education. These professors have achieved the highest level of education in their field, and earn the title Dr. in front of their name, instead of the plain old Ms. or Mr. that most of us are stuck with.

Now, let’s back up a moment. Just because you want to teach at the college level doesn’t mean you have earn your PhD in Education. If you are a specialist in your field, and earn your graduate level education, you can teach at the college level. Your state will have its own requirements for licensure that you will have to follow. Colleges that offer graduate level degree programs in education for students in your state can answer any questions you have about licensure. Just keep in mind that if you want to be referred to as ‘Professor,’ or ‘Doctor,’ you’ll need to earn that PhD or Doctorate degree in Education!
