Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Liberal Arts
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Minnesota, United States|
|Position:||Department Chair, Non-Tenure Track Faculty|
The Minneapolis College of Art and Design seeks qualified educators for faculty positions in its Liberal Arts department within a BFA/MFA-granting institution. The department is seeking applicants for the Liberal Arts Department Chair and two full time teaching positions.
The Liberal Arts Chair oversees curriculum, staffing, scheduling, budgeting, and faculty development, and represents the department’s needs and interests in the Academic Cabinet. The position requires teaching one course each semester. The Chair reports to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Applicants should have professional scholarly experience with either historical/contemporary art and design, or with humanities and sciences as represented in the Liberal Arts curriculum. Ideally, candidates will have supportive knowledge of the breadth of the liberal arts course offerings.
Full-time faculty are required to teach three courses each semester, and participate in committee work and other departmental and college activities required of faculty. The department is seeking applicants with professional knowledge and demonstrated teaching effectiveness in historical and contemporary art and design studies, humanities and sciences, or other related fields of study represented in our Liberal Arts curriculum.
MCAD’s Liberal Arts curriculum has a two-fold purpose: to provide intellectual and historical context for students’ studio educations, and to provide broader cultural, social and philosophical instruction relevant to all students seeking professional careers and responsible citizenship. One-third of the undergraduates’ course load is in Liberal Arts. The curriculum provides foundational instruction in writing and art and design history. A broad variety of upper level courses fill out art, design, and other histories of the studio majors of the college, while other upper level courses serve to meet the college’s distribution requirements for studies in the humanities and related sciences. The department offers an Art History minor.
Candidates must have a PhD in a related discipline, or other applicable advanced degree, demonstrated teaching experience (minimum 3 years) and a record of publication, critical writing, curating and/or scholarship.
Understanding a curriculum that touches on a wide range of disciplines will be a plus – in fields such as, but not limited to, philosophy, ethics, economics, social sciences, literature, cultural studies, art and design history, and politics. Special consideration will be given to candidates who have an imagination for the intersection of the humanities and the arts.
