Lecturer Pool - Humanities and Religious Studies

Job No: 511424
Work Type: Instructional Faculty - Temporary/Lecturer
Location: Sacramento
Categories: Unit 3 - CFA - California Faculty Association, Faculty - Letters/Humanities, Temporary, Part Time



DEPARTMENT: Humanities and Religious Studies

POSITION TITLE: Lecturer Pool - Humanities and Religious Studies

POSITION DETAILS:

The Department of Humanities and Religious Studies offers an integrated approach to the study of world cultures across history. In our courses, students undertake an interdisciplinary study of core ideas, ideals, and values. Religious Studies focuses on the beliefs and practices of the world's religions and their relationship to history and culture. The study of both Humanities and Religious Studies can be a profoundly personal experience, yet students acquire the concrete analytical, research, writing, and organizational skills essential to their professional careers. We offer a degree in Humanities with an optional concentration in Religious Studies; we also offer minors in both fields. The Department offers a wide-range of courses in global religions and humanities but also offers courses in American culture, popular culture, and film

Duties of a part-time lecturer include instruction, class preparation, grading, and office hours. Other duties may be assigned based on departmental needs. Course assignments, including dates, time, and modality, are made by the Department Chair under the direction of the College Dean.

Part-time lecturers are instructional faculty with conditional appointments based on enrollment and budget. Hires from the pool of applicants are made when there are instructional needs to fill coursework offered by an academic department based on changing enrollment patterns, changes to tenure-track faculty assignments, and other factors that cannot be addressed with our existing faculty. Initial appointments are typically for one semester, but occasionally academic year initial appointments are made. Appointments may be renewed based on department needs, funding, and performance. Often appointments are made just prior to the start of the semester.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: A Master degree in Humanities, Religious Studies, Film, or related discipline.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: A Ph.D. in Humanities, Religious Studies, Film, or related discipline. Teaching experience is a plus.

APPLICANT INSTRUCTIONS:

All new applicants will provide a cover letter, curriculum vita, three references, and transcript(s) indicating the highest degree earned. You also may submit sample syllabi as desired. Incomplete files will not be considered. After establishment of the required qualifications, lecturers in the hiring pool will be asked each semester to submit teaching preferences, subject to further review of qualifications for the particular courses requested.
