Qualifications:

Belmont Abbey College invites applications for adjuncts to teach first-year writing and sophomore survey literature classes in our Adult Degree Program both at our main campus and at our Charlotte Catholic campus.

Candidates must also have experience teaching similar courses at the college level.

Communications Essentials (the college’s basic writing course) and Rhetoric and Writing I and II (the college’s first-year writing sequence) focus on mastering grammar and Standard English, learning classical rhetorical approaches, developing critical thinking skills, and improving information literacy. Through assigned class readings, students also learn to appreciate the best that has been written in the Western tradition.

EN 211 and EN 212 are the two core curriculum literature courses required of Belmont Abbey College students. EN 211 exposes students to classics of Western literature in the ancient/classical world, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, with an emphasis on epic poetry and drama. EN 212 exposes students to classics of modern Western literature, with an emphasis on shorter forms of poetry and prose. The broad objective of the core curriculum of Belmont Abbey College is to introduce students to the Catholic intellectual tradition; in EN 211 and EN 212, students read, discuss, write about, and appreciate selected texts of the Western literary canon in relation to that tradition.
