Savannah College of Art and Design - Savannah, GA (30+ days ago)4.0

Join SCAD Savannah as a part-time professor of communication, help students develop as critical thinkers, and provide essential tools to complement studio practice and ensure professional creative success.

The liberal arts department is home to SCAD Core, one of the most academically diverse general education programs at any arts university in the U.S., where students learn to express, defend and investigate new ideas in required and elective classes in subjects including anatomy, astronomy, biology, communication, English, foreign languages, mathematics, philosophy, physics, political science and psychology.

As part of this diverse, energetic group of faculty, you’ll work within the historic district of Savannah, Georgia, a walkable, bikeable coastal city providing a living laboratory for the study of art and design.

You will teach one of the most important SCAD Core components, COMM 105: Speaking of Ideas, which is required for every undergraduate student. This fundamental class invites students to study techniques of oral communication and to read and speak about the ideas they encounter on a variety of cultural, historical and social topics.

Ideal candidates will have experience teaching media studies and intercultural communication, and candidates with teaching experience in any other liberal arts department disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.

Candidates should also have insight on how they can help advance the SCAD mission “to prepare talented students for professional careers, emphasizing individual attention in a positively oriented university environment.”

Terminal degree in communication or related discipline preferred; master’s degree considered
Demonstrated passion for teaching and for students
Extensive university-level teaching experience preferred
Enthusiasm for working with a variety of learning styles in a leading arts university
