Position Number: 00007523

Primary Function of Organization Unit: The History Department is a diverse group of scholars covering many areas of specialization. We pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. We offer small classes that allow a great deal of individual attention. In addition, our faculty advisers offer close contact and personal attention to each student. The History major is a place to get a “small college” education in a big state university. The department of twenty-nine professors has about three hundred fifty majors in three undergraduate programs—the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts with a Teacher Education Concentration, and the Bachelor of Sciences. All programs offer a great deal of student choice in courses and electives, allowing the pursuit of either a broad educational experience or a focused study. Our 80 student graduate program offers two distinct degrees: the M.A. in History and the M.A. in Public History. However, both degree programs require a strong foundation in traditional history.

Essential Job Duties: The Department of History is accepting applications for non-tenure track faculty part time positions in the position of Lecturer to teach survey courses and in exceptional circumstances, as needed, upper level courses. Specific hiring needs for Summer 2014 and the 2014-15 academic-year are yet to be determined. The positions are one-semester or one-year, non-tenure-track appointments with possibility of renewal.
