Alternative Career Paths for Educators

Just because you've earned your teaching degree, doesn’t mean you're confined to the classroom. It stands to reason that if you can wrangle a gaggle of kindergarteners, seventh-graders or first-year college students, you have many of the skills necessary to manage employees in various settings including:

• Higher education
• Childcare administration
• Publishing
• Information science
• Journalism
• And more.

Let's take a closer look at the career opportunities that await you with a graduate degree in education.

Northwestern University
Spotlight on Northwestern University's Information Systems Master's Program

Are you looking to advance your IT career? The accredited Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program at Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies prepares graduates for IT management and leadership positions. With an emphasis on the development and management of information systems existing in the workplace, the MSIS program is designed for professionals who seek a hands-on, laboratory-based experience that will broaden and deepen their knowledge of new and emerging IT. Students can choose from six areas of specialization to customize their curriculum according to their interests.

• Database and Internet Technologies
• Information Systems
• Information Systems Management
• Information Systems Security
• Medical Informatics
• Software Project Management and Development

Keeping flexibility in mind, the program is offered in either an online format or on-campus through part-time evening courses on Northwestern's Chicago campus. Students are taught the best practices in the field, along with the evolving standards and trends in this rapidly changing discipline.
