Is Getting a Masters in TEFL Worth It?

From New Republic
Many people ask me if I think getting a Masters in TEFL or Applied Linguistics is worth it.

For me it has been. I have two masters, one in TEFL and one in Educational Administration. Without these I wouldn't have the job I have now. However, you have to choose what's right for you.

A Masters in TEFL may not be worth it if . . .
  • You're only planning on teaching for a gap year or two.
  • It wouldn't make sense financially.
  • TEFL isn't your main job.
  • You hate TEFLing and have a definite exit plan.

A Masters in TEFL may not be worth it if . . .
There are a number of masters that can be done online. Here is a list of hundreds of programmes around the world. You'll have to decide if TEFLing is right for you. If it is, I recommend getting a masters sooner rather than later.
