I have a BA in Fine Arts and I would like to go into teaching. My end goal would be teaching college level in art education. The problem is to teach at a university I need my PhD. So, I am going for my masters next. My initial plan was to go for MEd (masters of education) and start with elementary. While there I would slowly finish my schooling with a doctorate and apply for work at a university level. I would then be teaching education, not art, but I would be where I want to be an thus not heart broken. It was brought to my attention this week that if I go for my MFA done with a dual focus of art and english (far more reliable for jobs) I can in turn begin teaching at a CC immediately and work towards my PhD if I was not satisfied with working at a CC instead of a university. I'm torn, I'm looking at both options with caution but neither are less appealing in the short term. Long term I am not sure I would love elementary when I am 50 or 60. Short term it feels like a more reliable career path. Suggestions? Advice? Something I've missed along the way? Thus far I am on track with my MEd application but now I'm questioning my plan of action and I'm not positive who to speak to about this yet.
