Assistant Professor of Spanish

Home Department: World Languages and Cultures

Employment Type: Tenure Track Faculty

Appointment: Faculty (10-month)

Primary Function:

The Department of World Languages and Cultures (WLC) is central to the Liberal Arts mission of Georgia College, encouraging and cultivating literary, linguistic and intercultural competence, academic achievement, critical thinking, and a broader understanding of global issues. WLC offers instruction in languages, literature and cultures in the classroom and beyond. We also offer study abroad programs, a state of the art language lab, conversation tables, community outreach activities, and honor societies for outstanding French and Spanish students. The new BA in World Languages and Cultures at Georgia College has been designed to provide students with well-developed cognitive and communication skills and with a broad knowledge base that will enable students to pursue additional studies at the graduate level or to enter the job market in positions that demand the ability to communicate effectively, to reason critically, and to solve problems successfully, in more than one language and in a variety of cultural contexts. In today’s rapidly increasing global economy, students may use foreign language study to add a valuable international dimension to numerous career opportunities in education, business, economics, government work, journalism, law, medicine, computer and scientific research.

Georgia College is known for combining the educational experience of private liberal arts colleges with the affordability of public universities. The university's main campus is a residential learning community focused on undergraduate education and a select number of graduate programs. Faculty and staff are dedicated to engaging students through high impact pedagogies that foster intellectual curiosity, reasoned inquiry, and critical thinking. We strive for excellence in the classroom and beyond. We nurture collaborative leadership and global citizenship. We value reason, respect and responsibility.

Georgia College seeks faculty and administrators who understand and embrace our public liberal arts mission and are dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through teaching, scholarship and service. All Georgia College faculty share the responsibility of teaching our core curriculum and providing foundation courses for majors and non-majors alike. To carry out our public liberal arts mission, we seek faculty with the desire and ability to engage students as they launch their intellectual journey.

Georgia College is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative-Action Institution committed to cultural, racial, and multi-ethnic communities and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is expected that successful candidates share in this commitment.
