My degree in education is a B.S., but I have a friend that got the Masters in Education. In my state, there is too much field work and student teaching required. To get certified here I don't know of any online degrees. A handful of colleges offer the education degree in a mini session. These type classes usually meet in the evening or on Saturdays. You usually go for 9 months and then are allowed to take your certification test. To get a good answer to your question, you must find out what your state requirements are for teacher certification. Each state is very different about how one can go about getting certified.
