Although the teaching profession can be quite interesting and challenging, and typically requires a great deal of creativity, those who are looking for even more creative applications of degrees in education may consider authoring and illustrating books for children. Students interested in this type of career may obtain a degree in children's literature. Obtaining this type of degree will require taking courses such as folklore and myths, fantasy literature, learning processes and the art of picture books. In completing these courses, the authors and illustrators learn how to create books for children which are enjoyable but also serve as learning tools.
