I know from the title of this post what I am looking for is probably a unicorn that does not exist, but I am toying with the idea of going to get more education in my field. I have a master's degree from Western New Mexico Univ, so this would be my second master's. I know folks on here have reservations about 2nd and 3rd master's degrees. Anyways, my degree has served me well so far. I am now teaching English full-time at a local CC. Since my master's is an interdisciplinary studies, with concentrations in English and History, some days I feel like a bit of an imposter, even though I know am well-qualified for my position, and I feel I am effective in my teaching. At the end of the day, I think I would like to gain a bit more knowledge, and experience in my field. Also, I worry about the day that SACS or another accrediting agency will only allow one to teach in the field that there master's degree is in, and not the 18-hour rule that exists today. (Anyone see the 18-hour rule going away soon?) For those that consider a second master's a waste of time/money. I'm right there with you. I'm not sure I 100% want to go back to get another one. But I am also not sure I want to embark on grueling PhD work, either, although I did look into the English PhD at Old Dominion. Does anyone on the degree forums here have any suggestions, or has anyone felt like this before? If the second degree isn't absolutely necessary for my job now, should I even really bother with embarking on another degree? Even if it would largely be for enrichment? Ideas?
