For individuals who want to teach and have a relevant master's degree, they can usually qualify to teach public (or private) K-12 schools or junior colleges (i.e., community and technical schools and vocational skills). To teach high school students, for example, most prospective teachers will likely need to complete a bachelor's degree program (focused on teaching a certain subject, such as math, science, or English). In some states, once a relevant bachelor's degree is obtained, aspiring high school teachers will also need to complete a master's program in the subject they plan on teaching. Furthermore, individuals with a master's degree are usually eligible to teach at a community college or a vocational skill (assuming they have completed all state-mandated teaching certification and licensure requirements). Please note, however, that individuals who want to teach at the university level must usually obtain a doctoral degree in the appropriate subject. For example, most biology professors have a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree in biology (or in a related field).
