    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?

    I have a B.S. in General Studies. I am working towards a M.Ed. in Instruction Design.

    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.
