Job Description

The Department of Classics and General Humanities at Montclair State University is in the process of staffing various course sections for Fall 2015, which runs from 1 September to 13 May.

An instructor must have at least an M.A. or its equivalent. Salary starts at roughly $3,600 dollars per course. Possession of a PhD will also factor in. Most daytime classes meet two days a week, most evening courses meet only one day a week. We have employed quite a few graduate students successfully in the past and they are encouraged to apply. MSU uses the CANVAS learning management system. Here are the course sections which, at this moment, are uncovered.
