Employment of college professors is projected to grow 19 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Both part-time and full-time postsecondary teachers are included in this projection. However, enrollment growth is anticipated to increase at a rate somewhat slower rate than it has in the past. College enrollment is projected to grow due to an increased number of 18- to 24-year-olds, and from an increased number of adults returning to college. Opportunities for college teachers will be particularly good in private community colleges and for-profit institutions (although enrollments at many of these schools have declined in recent years). Retirement of current faculty members will also provide job openings. However, competition for full-time, tenure-track positions at four-year schools will be very strong.
