I am currently studying an online TESOL course and wish to take up teaching . I have read several hundred forums and one thing puzzles me. Alot of people say that you should have a degree to go along with your TESOL/TEFL/TESL certificate.
Now I have a B.A. in English from a College, is that the same in the TESOL world as having a B.A. in English from a university ? Are any "degrees" looked at the same?

One of the biggest reasons for the degree is for immigration purposes, although some employers may look at individual degrees differently. You cannot, for example, get a teaching visa for Korea or Japan without a degree, whether or not the employer wants to hire you.

As to whether your degree is adequate, as long is it is a Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution it should be fine.
