Journalism Adjunct Positions
Seattle University’s Communication Department invites applications for several part time faculty positions to teach the following courses in Journalism during the 2013-2014 academic year: 1. Introduction to Digital Production, including using audio and video for storytelling (5-credit class). 2. Advanced Online Journalism Production for multiplatforms (5-credit class). 3. Literary/Narrative Journalism (5-credit class). We also invite applications for two new courses: Networking for Journalism (2-credit class). and Journalism Mentorship (3-credit class).
* Networking for Journalism: This course will orient students, through readings and fieldwork, to the profession of journalism today. It will introduce students to professionals in the field - practicing journalists, news organizations, and professional associations - to facilitate networking for internships, publication, and jobs. Students will attend speeches, seminars, and workshops that shed light on the changing face of journalism.
* Journalism Mentorship: This course is designed to bring together mentors from the field of Journalism and students. The mentors will have the freedom to approach their mentorship in their own creative way. However, this course will require some structured components to ensure students are challenged in the core goals of the Journalism Major: critical thinking, ethical interpersonal relationships, and accurate, creative writing for print, broadcast or online. We are seeking mentors from specific journalistic specialties, for instance: environment, legal, sports, business, technology, art/music reviews.
Successful candidates will have the ability to teach one or more undergraduate courses in Fall, Winter, or Spring quarter during the academic year 2013 – 2014. Please provide any evidence of successful teaching experience, especially at the university level. We seek candidates with significant relevant professional experience in journalism and an appropriate Bachelors or advanced degree.
Applicants should submit all material electronically to the Journalism Committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a statement of teaching philosophy and professional accomplishments, a resume, and the contact information of three references (including e-mail). Review of applications will begin May 17, 2013 and continue until the positions are filled.
