This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.
I learned from my father that teaching is one of the noblest, if not THE noblest, profession one can pursue. During his generation, he was already "deputized" as a teacher simply because he graduated at the top of his 6th grade class. And so, he told us his children that he taught those who were younger than him what he had learned during his 6 years of school - mainly reading and writing. Today, a teacher must aim beyond that. At this very competitive world, a post graduate degree can mean enriching what one already knows and possibly promotion or a step or two above one's present salary level. But does everybody have the time to pursue it? Yes, if you consider enrolling at the USC Rossier School of Education's MAT@USC, an online degree program which can be completed in 12 months, according to its program information , if you decided to. Imagine yourself earning a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from one of the most prestigious research universities, not only in America but in the whole world, with 100 years of education history behind its name and guided by a group of distinguished faculty that had contributed to modern education and had been recognized for it. Further imagine yourself participating in commencement ceremonies and earning lifetime benefits as a member of a renowned alumni association. And it even offers a tuition reimbursement program which can be a plus during this harsh economic times. Furthermore, what can be better than earning your degree at your own phase, at your own time and place. And, how about picturing yourself being a part of the elite Trojan family of educators!!! Everybody will surely recognize that license plate!
