Postsecondary teachers

College and university faculty members make up the majority of postsecondary teachers.  Others instruct students in other academic settings, such as vocational or technical schools. Most postsecondary teachers, particularly those at four-year colleges and universities, also conduct research in the subjects they teach.

Most postsecondary teachers use computer technology extensively, including the Internet, email, and software programs. They may use computers in the classroom as teaching aids and may post course content, class notes, class schedules, and other information online. Some instructors use the Internet to teach courses to students at remote sites.

Education requirements vary though most jobs require an advanced degree. People with doctoral degrees typically have the best prospects.

Expected job growth: 17 percent.
