Education Careers--Teaching Children

Can I start a career Teaching Children with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology?

With your undergraduate degree in Psychology, there are a number of career paths you can take to be a teacher of some type. First, you can teach grades K-12. However, you can only be a K-12 teacher if you take the necessary courses (including student teaching) required to be certified in the state where you will ultimately reside. For a typical Psychology major, this will likely make lengthen your undergraduate career. Second, there are other types of teaching that you might like to do, which may or may not require certification. This includes teaching classes at various location (e.g., at a community center): GED, life skills, parenting, etc. These teaching opportunities may be in the US or abroad (e.g., teaching English in a foreign country). Third, there are opportunities to teach through government agencies such as Americorps or the Peace Corps, but they pay less. Finally, you can also tutor individuals individually or as part of a learning center, perhaps not in Psychology per se, but in a subject which you have a strong background (e.g., math, foreign language).
