In continuing contract positions, faculty members are considered for professional security after six years of successful teaching. An earned PhD in Political Science is preferred, though qualified advanced ABDs will be considered.

Our new hire will teach American Politics classes in our growing political science major and will contribute to our Global Perspectives core curriculum, teaching a sophomore-level course called “Global Perspectives in Economics and Political Science.” The GPS 220 class most closely resembles Introduction to Comparative Politics at other universities, with an additional focus on economics.
