Ouch! It hurts to disagree with Steve. We go way back. Be that as it may, I
have been approached to teach credit classes for a degree program and I do
not have an MA. I am not sure how typical this is, however. Certainly to
teach full-time and become tenured you need advanced degrees. I think Steve
is right that extension or community college requirements may be less
