Educational services is the nation's second largest field of employment, with teachers accounting for nearly 50 percent of its workers. While recent funding cutbacks are affecting the job market for teachers, librarians, instructional aides and others in the field, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects that retirements in a number of education professions – together with the continuing growth of student populations at most levels and school reforms calling for more individual attention to students – will increase overall demand for educational services workers.
Moreover, because greater numbers of high school graduates are attending college and more working adults are returning to school to enhance or update their skills, jobs for educators at the post-secondary and graduate levels are expected to grow faster than within the field of education as a whole. As the BLS notes, jobs at postsecondary institutions or in administration typically require post-graduate or doctoral degrees.
To meet this growing need, CSUN – through the Tseng College – offers several professionally focused graduate programs for those seeking professional preparation or career-advancement in the field of education.
