    Which Online English M.A.

    I have a lot of teaching experience...12 years in secondary education and a few years before that in elementary ed. Does that count? Cheers, Barnaby
  2. I have been accepted to 2 online M.A programs. I want to teach community college English at the end of it all...I have a place with the Rhetoric, Writing, and Digital Media M.A. at Northern Arizona University, and English M.A. at U.T. Tyler. One is more writing focused and the other looks like a general English program. N.A.U. is a little more money...can anyone help me with my decision. I am running out of time!
  3. I have a question for Old Bill. I feel stuck and need a little friendly guidance. I have been teaching High School ELA for 15 years (on and off), and have a M.A. in Humanities from a cheapo California State Uni. My unofficial mentor in the work world told me to get an English M.A. if I want to teach English at a community college...they only want square pegs to fit square holes- won't look at a Humanities degree. Now I have a couple of problems...

    1. Go for an additional M.A. online (Arizona State, University of Texas/Tyler)

    2. Try and get a Phd. (might mean taking time off work and running up a lot of debt)

    3. Find a program that connects my education to work at the college level... research/qualifications that turns into a teaching post.

    My life goals have been to get out of the teen world and start working with adults. This is the master plan. I am just not clear about how to get there.

    Cheers! Barnaby (England fan- UK national living in Los Angeles)
