Preferred Qualification

  • Teaching experience at the graduate level.


Adjuncts are typically compensated at a rate of $1,058 per credit per course.

Instructors who are co-teaching a content course that does not involve clinical supervision will split the credits, so each co-teacher receives half of the pay above. Seminar courses that require supervision are typically designed to have multiple co-leaders to allow for appropriate student-to-supervisor ratios. In this case, each co-leader is paid at the credit hour rate above. In addition, Cognitive Affective Psychology and Social Psychology are paid double the above rate since they are required courses that require specific degrees with implications for accreditation.

The University of Denver has provided a compensation range that represents its good faith estimate of what the University may pay for the position at the time of posting. The University may ultimately pay more or less than the posted compensation range. The salary offered to the selected candidate will be determined based on factors such as the qualifications of the selected candidate, departmental budget availability, internal salary equity considerations, and available market information, but not based on a candidates sex or any other protected status.
