I have a BA in Marketing from Florida Atlantic University, which I earned in 1971. What do you offer at the master's degree level that would enable me to teach at the college level? High school level?

OK, I am going to answer your question backwards. First, teaching at the high school level. Anyone with a bachelor's degree can teach at the high school level with the proper certification. To do this you either need a degree in education or to earn an alternative teaching certification that is approved by your state's education agency. You can contact your state's department of education to find accredited and state recognized alternative teaching certification programs.

Now, what you will need to teach the the college level. Well, there are two paths you can take for this. The first, and fastest is a master's degree. If you have a master's degree you will have the qualification to teach within higher education. Typically, most individuals with a master's degree will teach at the community college level, or at the adjunct level within a university. But, if you are looking to teach as a full time faculty member at a university or community college you should consider earning your PhD.

Now, as for which degree you should earn - to teach high school it really does not matter, as long as you have a bachelor's and be certified. As for teaching in higher education - you will need a degree in the specific area you are considering teaching. So for you I would considering continue your education into an online graduate marketing degree program.
