The Department of Criminology at the University of West Georgia invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 1, 2018. While the specialty area is open, we are particularly interested in candidates who have an expertise on issues related to legal studies.
The department is a top-five major with over 650 undergraduates and approximately 30 graduate students housed in the College of Social Sciences. Located 45 miles west of Atlanta in the city of Carrollton, the University of West Georgia aspires to be sought after as the best place to work, learn, and succeed. Interested applicants are invited to visit the department website at criminology.westga.edu.
