Most people who get a BA in liberal arts go on to get their teaching credential and become a teacher

Really? There are specialized degrees for teaching that integrate the certification into the degree. I was told by my advisor that getting your BA in liberal arts makes you actually have to go another 1-2yrs to get your teacher certification.



My AA is in lib arts, I'm transferring to another school for my BA in journalism but saw a new program at a different school that is less money and is a BA liberal arts.



I was thinking of either being a teacher or a news editor.

I have a friend who got her BA in liberal arts and she went on to get her credentials, and I've heard of other people going that route. But I'm sure your advisor knows what's best and I would definitely listen to what they say since that's their profession. Sorry if I misinformed you, I'm going to research it now.

Oh no, no worries. I think a lot of people that have lib arts degrees do later go on to become teachers, maybe because it's harder to use the degree for other purposes (at least that is my concern) but honestly I'm not sure.
