In the southern United States, one of the general requirements for teaching a given course is to have 18 semester hours at the graduate level.
I currently have 12 graduate hours in two separate fields. Though it's unlikely I'd ever be asked to teach a course in either, I am curious. If one were to take courses in Europe, how would the ETCS credits be likely interpreted for such a requirement? Would the common 2 ECTS = 1 American semester hour conversion be used?
