Adjunct Faculty - Western Civilization
Flashpoint Chicago, a campus of Columbia College Hollywood is looking for Adjuncts for Western Civilization.
For most of history, humans lived in small groups that hunted and gathered their food, but around 8,000 BCE (Before Common Era), they settled down to farm, formed larger groups, settled in communities and created religious institutions. By 1500, some humans had created large-scale institutions while others retained smaller, local institutions. Since then, the tension between large and local institutions has provided much of the energy that drives history. Course topics include developments in technology, economy, politics, religious institutions and faiths, cultural media and Social ideals. Together, these themes add up to the civilization of the west.

Columbia College Hollywood was originally established in the 1952 in the MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles as a branch campus of Columbia College in Chicago. The curriculum was designed to focus on the burgeoning television and radio industries and featured a faculty made up of working television and radio professionals. In 1959, Columbia College Hollywood separated from the Chicago institution to operate as an independent, private, nonprofit college.
During the 1960s, as the entertainment industry grew and changed, the college established a cinema department with a dual focus on film and television. To serve its expanding curricula and student population, the college moved to a new campus on Las Palmas Avenue in Hollywood in 1970. In 1997, Columbia College Hollywood established its current campus in the historic, former world headquarters of Panavision, a foremost designer and manufacturer of cameras and lenses for the film and television industries. The college is now located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley, providing access to major film and television studios in Los Angeles.
In 2018, Columbia College Hollywood merged with Tribeca Flashpoint College in Chicago, Illinois. As a result, a wider range of programs and services are available to students at both locations and online. The campus in Illinois is now known as Flashpoint Chicago, a campus of Columbia College Hollywood.
