Description: Founded in 1863, Saint Mary's is a residential campus nestled 20 miles east of San Francisco in the picturesque Moraga Valley. Based in the Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts traditions, Saint Mary's currently enrolls more than 4,000 students from diverse backgrounds in undergraduate and graduate programs. The De La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College.

As a comprehensive and independent institution, Saint Mary's offers undergraduate and graduate programs integrating liberal and professional education. Saint Mary's reputation for excellence, innovation, and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning, and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

Introduction to Psychology introduces students to the science of how people think, feel, and behave. The course explores classic and contemporary research on such topics as the biological aspects of behavior; cognitive, personality, social, cultural, and developmental psychology; and psychopathology. Through the use of the scientific method, students will learn how psychology informs our understanding of what it means to be human. This is a 4 unit undergraduate course.

This course will be taught in person on the Moraga campus during the 2024 Fall term on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 - 9:05 am.

In addition to teaching, the instructor is expected to hold regular office hours (a minimum of one hour per week) in order to provide students with support outside of the classroom.

The successful candidate will hold an advanced degree in Psychology, and undergraduate teaching experience in Psychology or a closely related field. Candidates should have a successful record of teaching experience at the undergraduate. Preference will be given to those who have previously taught the course, or Psych 001, Psych 140, Psych 150, or Psych 160.

Candidates must reside in California.
