Are Bachelor of Teaching degrees considered the same as Bachelor of Education degrees, if not, how are they different and what are the similarities?
I believe most institutions don't have a separate Bachelors program in Teaching. A B.A. in Education can often branch out into specializations such as Elementary Ed, Adult Ed, etc. Even if you do complete a Bachelors, many states still require you to complete a separate certification in teaching, which can be a part of your course load.
Hi everyone! My name's Andy and I'm a proud graduate of all three Booker schools. I was BHS class of 2011 and was an active member of VPA TV/Film, student govt., NHS president, CFES, the tennis team, and was also dual-enrolled at SCF my senior year. I graduated from New York University (NYU) where I majored in English with minors in Social Entrepreneurship & Urban Education. While at NYU I studied abroad in London and Abu Dhabi, started a nonprofit, and had internships in finance, education, and e-commerce.
After undergrad, I spent two years working at Google in people operations/recruiting before getting my Masters in Technology, Innovation & Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I was very blessed to earn both of my degrees fully funded thanks to the Gates Millennium Scholarship. And for the last two years I've been back in New York where I work as a Senior Program Manager at SYPartners, a creative consulting company. Here to answer questions you might have!
