Higher Education Jobs

Higher Education Job Overview

Jobs in higher education are many and varied. People who are interested in working in a higher education job might consider administration jobs or work as a college professor. College professors can move up in their own departments to the dean of the department or other essential administrative positions. Some other positions are available, including engineers responsible for the maintenance of buildings and accountants responsible for keeping up with student finances and college spending. Each of these people would work closely with young adults in an educational environment and help them in their desire to earn a college education.

Higher Education Job Education Requirements

The amount of education needed for a higher education job depends on the area of interest. A college professor would need to have a graduate degree and preferably a doctorate in their chosen specialty. Higher education administrators might be able to find a lower-level position with an undergraduate degree, but many upper-level positions require a doctorate. Students attending the college or people without degrees fill many administrative support positions. The type of degree needed would depend on the area of interest the person wants to pursue. For instance, someone working on the finance side of college administration would seek a degree in accounting or finance.

Higher Education Job Market

In the past few years, higher education has seen a rise in tuition and a public outcry to bring these costs under control. Universities are losing the public money they count on to meet their budgetary needs. Many colleges and higher education schools are trying to tame cost by lowering the numbers of tenured professors and limiting the support staff numbers. Many of these colleges continue to enroll many new students each year and grow their numbers.

Higher Education Job Salary Information

The type of job sought determines the salary one would expect from a higher education job. A higher education administration position would offer an average salary of $86,490 per year, or $41.58 an hour. A college professor who holds tenure would expect to earn $126,891 per year. This salary would increase or decrease depending on the field and location in which they teach.
