That all depends on where you plan on being a teacher at. Most K-12 will require at least a bachelors. College levels will require at least a masters if not a PhD. Remember this is just your education to become a good teacher it will take many years and a lot of maturity to present history to young minds so that they will absorb it like a sponge. In my 24 years of schooling I can honestly say that I only had 1 year that my history teacher was impressive enough to make me want to come to class and learn each day. If this is your dream go for it great teachers are hard to find.
I dont know, but I at least reccomend a bachllors degree in teaching. To add onto that it depends on where you want to teach because even though you have a bachelor's degree the state/county you want to teach in may differ in the courses they require in order for you to teach. For example you may need 9 hours of college history courses, 6 hours of ed. classes, etc. And they may also vary in their certification requirements. One school system may let you teach out of field for a year or two so you can get your requirements satisfied and another may not hire you until all your work is in order. I have my Bachelor's degree, which I obtained in four years of college. I teach junior high and high school history. To teach on the college level, you need to be getting, or have your master's degree, which can take 1-2 years, depending on the program you enter. I use to think 500 after looking at most of my history teachers.
