The answer depends on where you want to teach and what your career goals are for teaching.

If you are interested in teaching and becoming a tenured professor at a university, then you will most likely need a PhD. This really does depend on the program you are interested in teaching and the department.

However, if you are interested in teaching at a community college, most of them require a Masterís degree for their instructors. You can also become an adjunct professor that works part time at a university with a Masterís degree.

Your best option is to determine what you want to be teaching and your overall career goals, then determine what degree makes the most sense.
