Professional Outlook

Employment of high school teachers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

About 77,400 openings for high school teachers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

Program Advantages

Our teacher education transfer program prepares you to be able to transfer into a baccalaureate program in adolescent education. The smaller class sizes and attention from professors at Alfred State will help prepare you when you transfer to other schools, with all the strategies needed to become an extraordinary teacher.
