SaraB Sorry......all post-secondary institutions require a Master's degree with 18 graduate hours in the specified area they will be teaching in. The only exception would be in an adult-education area (for those attempting to get their GED or diploma). Other than that.....in Sociology or Criminal Justice, you will need to have obtained a Master's Degree. Probably not the news you wanted to hear but the Master's requirement assists in keeping college institutions accreditation in place. Though.....keep plugging away at the graduate level and you'll get there! Trust me, I wanted to teach college for a long time while working on my Master's and it was nerve racking waiting until I graduated to begin adjuncting...but well worth the wait! Good luck!
