Part-Time Teaching Inquiries

Occasionally, the English Department has need of adjunct instructors to teach first-year composition and introductory level creative writing. Interested individuals are invited to send 1) a letter of interest that addresses your approach to teaching reading and writing to the wide range of students at a regional comprehensive university or similar institution, 2) a current CV, and 3) a sample syllabus of the course as you teach it to the department chair, Dr. Cynthia Stretch, the assistant chair, Dr. Bob McEachern, and the composition director, Dr. Brian Johnson. A graduate degree in English studies and previous experience teaching composition are the normal requirements for teaching first-year composition at SCSU; an MFA degree or its equivalent is normally required to teach creative writing courses.
