Spartanburg Community College (SCC) will host a Job Fair to recruit qualified part-time faculty members and provide an opportunity for interested individuals to meet with SCC’s hiring managers. The part-time faculty job fair will be held on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 from 4 – 7p.m. at SCC’s central campus in Spartanburg.
SCC is seeking part-time faculty members with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience in all academic areas of the college. “Many people aren’t aware that you do not have to have teaching experience to become an adjunct (part-time) faculty member at the College,” said Mary Whitener, employment and training manager for SCC human resources. ”Because SCC offers a variety of courses that require different levels of educational and professional experience, faculty members can teach these courses with a combination of degrees and professional work experience.”
Specific teaching credentials and educational requirements for the different types of courses offered at SCC are as follows:
Faculty members teaching transfer courses must have a master’s degree and 18 graduate hours in one of the following disciplines
- Humanities/fine arts
- Social/behavioral sciences
- Natural sciences/mathematics
The minimum academic degree for faculty teaching in professional, occupational and technical areas must be at the same level at which the faculty member is teaching. A typical combination is a bachelor’s degree with appropriate work experience.
Faculty members teaching courses in diploma and certificate program areas are required to have some college or specialized training in the discipline area with emphasis on competence through work experience.
Faculty members teaching developmental education courses must have a bachelor’s degree in the discipline area being taught and work experience or graduate training.
SCC’s part-time teaching positions offer new or seasoned faculty members college-level teaching experience, as well as an opportunity for additional income. Other benefits include flexible class schedules during the day, evening, weekend and online as well as convenient campus locations in Spartanburg, Gaffney, Duncan and Union. “Spartanburg Community College is a great place to teach, work and learn,” explains Whitener. “I encourage anyone interested in teaching to attend our job fair and find out how they can become an SCC faculty member and make a difference in the lives of our students.”
Individuals who meet the above requirements should complete an SCC online application at www.jobs.sc.gov and attend the job fair to learn more about the part-time faculty positions.
