how can I get a job teaching English overseas?

I have a degree from University of Kansas and I'll have a Masters this May, but both of my degrees are in Art, and there is zero job placement for anything art related here at LSU.

First is qualifications. In general you'll need a degree and a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate to get a visa and work abroad teaching English. The degree can be in almost any subject as it is usually required for the visa only so you will find teachers with a degree in Engineering or Sociology... More

I'm not sure about Greece, but I taught English in China for two years and loved it. I had my bachelors degree at the time and that is all I needed.
