Belmont Abbey College invites applications for adjuncts to teach first-year writing and sophomore survey literature classes.
Teaching the following courses:
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.
EN 211 and EN 212 are the two core curriculum literature courses. EN 211 exposes students to classics of Western literature in the ancient/classical world, Middle Ages, and Renaissance. EN 212 exposes students to classics of modern Western literature. 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.
Applicants must have a Master’s degree in English and should also have experience teaching similar courses at the college level. Ideal candidates will understand and embrace the responsibility of supporting the college’s Catholic identity and value participation in an academic community dedicated to a robust Catholic and Benedictine educational vision.
