University Job in Korea with only a BA

uni job Korea
University Jobs Korea with a Masters Degree

A reader question from Jennifer:

"I am currently looking for uni jobs that do not require a masters.  Do you know of any groups on Facebook I could get notifications? Thank you so much!"

My answer:

If you haven't already read my book, check out How to Get a University Job in South Korea: The English Teaching Job of Your Dreamsfor advice on what to do if you don't have a masters degree but want to work at a uni. It's going to be tough, but not impossible especially if you're working on a masters or are willing to work at a "unigwon."

But, to answer your question. I don't think there are any Facebook groups, or any other kind of site for that matter which is dedicated solely to uni jobs in Korea for those without masters degrees. You could join my Facebook group, Foreign Teachers in Korean Universities where jobs occasionally get posted. I'm sure you look there already, but check out Dave's ESL Cafe Korean job board. You'll have to wade through lots of junk but there are a few nuggets of gold. Finally, I recommend Profs Abroad. It is a paid site, but you'll be able to get access to all the uni jobs in Korea, even the hard to find ones on school websites very easily in one place.

Woosong University in Daejeon routinely hires teachers with a BA to teach in their University affiliated hagwon program while earning an MA on their campus for a very reasonable price. Of course, an MA from Woosong may not be worth the sheepskin it is printed on in one of the big 7 English speaking countries, but that degree can help you secure other University positions across Asia and the Middle East. You would think that a language school would have a better link to their program. Also, look around, I heard/read that Australia has some decently priced (and more readily accepted) degree programs, but you can work for Woosong as you complete your degree and even qualify for many of their scholarships.
