Why a TESOL Master’s Degree?

There are many more jobs today for teachers who want to teach English to speakers of other languages. If you are interested in finding a good paying job where you will be in demand - both in the US and overseas - earning your Master’s in TESOL can be a smart choice.

Some of the benefits of earning your TESOL Master’s include:

Better Salary

Teacher who get a master’s degree will usually automatically get a higher salary than a teacher with just a bachelor’s degree. In TESOL, someone with a master’s degree will also have more advanced techniques in language training. This means that they will usually get a higher salary.

For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the median wage for all adult literacy teachers is $48,500. But for the top ten percent, almost all of whom have a master’s degree, they will earn more than $82,000.

More Jobs Available

BLS also reports that there will be a solid increase in job demand for all types of adult education teacher jobs. There will be a nine percent increase in these jobs by 2022. However, we anticipate that there will be an even higher demand for learning English in the coming years. So, there should be more demand for TESOL teachers than this.

If you are interested in teaching overseas, you are in luck! It is anticipated that there will be a strong increase in demand for TESOL teachers who speak American English. Some of the countries where there will be the highest demand are:

  • Turkey
  • Japan
  • Poland
  • Saudi Arabia
  • South Korea
  • China

If you still want to focus your job search in the US, with a master’s in TESOL you may also be able to get a part time teaching job at a community college. BLS states that the job demand in this field will soar by 19% by 2022. There should definitely be a higher demand in this area for TESOL teachers.
