This is becoming a popular option for college courses because it allows busy working professionals or anyone looking to advance their educations and career. Most, if not all online teachers have to have at least a bachelors degree or higher. The requirements are basically the same as traditional teachers.
At the high school level, they must have a bachelor s degree and a teaching license.
At the community college level, a master s degree is the minimum requirement for teaching online. At the university level, a doctorate is generally required.
Many online colleges and universities prefer to hire faculty members with doctoral degrees in addition to a teaching license.
