Guidelines for Applying for an Adjunct Faculty Position in the Literature and Humanities Program

Adjunct literature and humanities faculty teach a wide range of sophomore survey courses. A list of these survey courses with the expected outcomes for each course is available here.

Applicants for adjunct positions must hold a master’s degree in Literature, and preference will be given to those with experience teaching literature or humanities at the college level. If you are interested in being considered, please fill out the application form on the Adjunct Opportunities web page and send it with a statement of your qualifications and a resume to our Department Manager at Your materials will be forwarded to the Director of Literature and Humanities.

Our need for new instructors depends on possible growth in enrollment and the departure of current faculty. While we do everything we can to schedule courses ahead of time, sometimes we must fill new sections within the last few weeks before classes begin. Unfortunately, we must also sometimes cut courses that are under-enrolled. Part-time faculty are hired on a semester contract, and they may teach up to three classes per semester.
