To MA in TESOL or not...

Hello everyone!

Thank you in advance for any friendly help and advice! Thank you!

I am currently looking into MA TESOL programs with the mindset that when I eventually finish teaching abroad, I will have to secure employment back in the US. In this case, the MA TESOL, which doesn't come with state teaching certification, seems weaker than a MAT with certification in English K-12. What do you think of the following quote: "For the most part, the jobs abroad don't really care whether you do a degree in TESOL, applied linguistics, or education. They just need that degree and experience"?

I appreciate any of your wisdom and insights. Thank you!
