Psychology Teacher Education

If you're someone who wants to work in an education setting but isn't interested in teaching a more traditional subject like math or English, consider becoming a psychology teacher. To become a psychology teacher education major, you'll take classes in both psychology and educational theory. Coursework will include psychological theories, the history of psychology, learning theory, child development, and teaching pedagogy. You'll not only learn in the classroom but also put your knowledge into practice when you complete your student teaching toward the end of your college career. Most students who major in psychology teacher education end up working as high school instructors, but some enter the private sector or as researchers.
