Hi there, As a US citizen, with an undergrad in Psychology wanting to transition into the philosophy field, I have been considering distance-learning grad programs at: University of Edinburgh (Masters) http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate/degrees/index.php?r=site/view&id=844 Birmingham University (Masters & PhD) http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/postgraduate/courses/research/phil/philosophy.aspx My question regarding this is whether anyone knows whether or not these degrees would enable me to be hired as a professor here in the US, upon completion? My concern comes from something I've noticed about job ads for philosophy teaching positions here; most of them say something to the effect of: "Minimum qualifications: Master’s degree or higher in Philosophy prior to start date, from an accredited college or university" and sometimes they even say "from a regionally or nationally accredited college or university" Any thoughts, feedback, suggestions on this would be much appreciated! (If you have comments that aren't related to the question, but more to my considerations, those are welcome too.) --Marjorie
