Teachers-postsecondary
Description: Postsecondary teachers work at colleges, community colleges, universities, and research facilities. They specialize in one field, such as history, physics, or journalism. They do research and write articles and books about their findings. Most professors hold advanced degrees. While many schools do not hold classes during the summer months, faculty work year-round, preparing lectures, attending seminars, and conducting research.
