    Getting Started Advice

    Hello everyone,

    I was just wondering what are some places that hire online adjuncts with just a bachelors degree? I know it is a long shot, but I am trying to get some experience as well as earn a few dollars. I am currently starting a Master's program at WGU . I notice that most schools list Master's requirements, but I have seen some forums where individuals started with only a bachelors with no mention of institutions. Any help is greatly appreciated. I would also be interested in k-12 as well, but most require certification that I don't have yet.

    Schools that teach trades or vocational programs like allied health will sometimes hire adjunct instructors with a Bachelor's or even Associate's in that field, since in some cases that's considered a "terminal degree" by accreditors. So in what subject is your Bachelor's degree?
    BS, Info Sys concentration, Charter Oak State College
    MA in Educational Tech, George Washington University
    PhD in Leadership, U. of the Cumberlands (in progress)

    Then I hate to say it, but I think your odds of finding a teaching position at a college or university are very low, at least for now.

    ITT Technical Institute allows you to teach associate level courses with a Bachelors degree. Look at nationally accredited schools. I think some community colleges allow you to teach with a Bachelors as well.

    Some nationally accredited schools will let you teach in certificate and associates programs if you have the experience to make up for the lack of a master's degree. I have a coworker who teaches CJ with just a bachelor's, but her bachelor's is in CJ. I can't quite remember, but I think that, if you don't have a degree in the subject, more experience is required by our accreditor. Other than GED and some continuing education courses, I've only seen community colleges ask for a bachelor's or less for vocational/technical programs. Those usually require related experience and, sometimes, a related degree.
    Texas State University - PhD CJ (ABD)
    Angelo State University - Master of Security Studies and Grad Cert Terrorism
    Thomas Edison State College/University - BA Soc Sci, AAS in Environmental Safety, ASNSM in Biology, & BSBA in CIS
