    The most common number asked for is 18 credits, but I just saw an ad that only asked for 12 credits.

    Generally 18, although IIRC one of the smaller regionals was okay with 12, at least at one point.

    When I was at Southeastern University in DC in 2005-6, I tried to convince our Provost to offer 18 credit graduate certificates online and market them to adjuncts who wanted to be able to add a teaching discipline, but sadly it was not to be.

    Am I right in thinking that a master's degree in something is usually the minimum qualification to teach at the college level?

    Usually, but not always. And "Master's degree in anything and 18 semester-hours in the discipline to be taught" is the usual requirement. So if you have a Master's in English and 18 semester-hours in Finance, you're usually considered academically qualified to teach both Finance and English.
