I am getting a self-designed degree from Western New Mexico University. It is a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, with concentrations in History and English - 18 hours in each subject. I also majored in History as an undergrad. My passion is history, so after I graduate, ideally, I would like to get a job as a history teacher, hopefully at a community college, either online or B&M. When I first was looking into online schools, I was careful to make sure that the course prefixes (i.e. HIS & ENG) matched up in the areas I want to teach. From what I can tell, most positions, including my home state of NC, seem to only require a master's and 18 hours in the subject you are applying for. My question is: is it difficult to get a job as an adjunct after graduating? Does anyone with these types of degrees have experience with this? I don't think I am shooting for the stars here, but I would like to know that I will be able to use my degree after I finish, at least as a part-time adjunct. I am really enjoying the freedom of completing my degree online, I would just like to know it's not a waste of time. Most of NC is rural, and it has a growing community college system that often has openings. I don't believe competition is as fierce as more urban areas or cities. I am being too hopeful in thinking I will luck into one of these positions?
