Sacred Heart University's Department of Catholic Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for on-ground adjunct faculty positions to lead sections of the University's academic signature core--The Human Journey Seminars: Great Books in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. Faculty may be assigned to teach CIT 201: Journey to God (focusing more on ancient and medieval texts, most sections in fall) and/or CIT 202: Journey to the World (focusing on 19th and 20th century texts, most sections in spring) based on relative competency and interest. Through seminar pedagogy and by reading great works of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, these seminars engage students in an interdisciplinary understanding of this Tradition as an ongoing 2000-year-old conversation between the great thinkers of the Tradition and the cultures in which they have lived. Candidates must have a Master's degree or Ph.D. in the humanities. Faculty Training for teaching in these seminars will be available with a stipend, and adjunct faculty are included and welcome in the life of the department (meetings, social events, etc.) as they are interested and able.


Candidates must have a Master's degree or Ph.D. in the humanities. 

The successful candidate will actively promote a collegial environment and consciously apply our mission and values to create a culture of inclusion and belonging; a safe space where all may thrive and succeed and participate in developmental activities to increase understanding and awareness of issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion; they will apply that understanding to guide their approach in all aspects of their job and the community as a whole and demonstrate that we are "Stronger Together" as described in the Office for Inclusive Excellence's Mission and Vision statements.
