EUGENE, Ore., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice (http://www.collegechoice.net) has published its annual ranking of best master's in teaching degrees. The ranking can be viewed at http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/best-masters-degrees-in-teaching-2016/.
Katie Amondson, Associate Editor of the ranking says, "For teachers already working, earning a Master's degree is a good path to increased earning potential. It is also a key step toward career advancement and establishing oneself as a highly qualified expert. Aspiring educators who pursue either a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) or a Master's in Education (MEd) often do so to advance not only their career, but their own knowledge and mastery of the teaching profession itself."
The College Choice 2016 Rankings of the Best Masters in Teaching Degrees takes into account several key factors to ensure that you get the best rate of return on your educational investment. These factors include academic ranking, acceptance rate, tuition per-year (based only on out-of-state tuition), and average graduate pay.
"With our ranking of best master's in teaching degrees, we have aimed to help students desiring to advance their career in teaching find a school that is not only a great fit, but is a solid return on investment," said Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice.
