The University of Redlands College of Arts and Science, Department of Business Administration and Accounting, seeks an adjunct to teach at least one section per semester of the course “Business 226: The Rise of American Capitalism, 1860 - 1932.” A gateway course grounded in the historical record and required of all potential business majors, the class meets three times per week: two eighty-minute lectures periods and one fifty-minute research lab session. While class sizes are small, usually less than 24 students, the expectations for student work in both quality and volume are quite high. Demonstrated experience in the teaching of writing, especially in reference to editing, revising and the development of semester-long research projects is expected. The department seeks candidates from a variety of disciplines including, but not restricted to, history, sociology, political science, American Studies, and economics.
The position will play a significant role in introducing students to Capitalism generally and the history of the period 1860-1932 in the United States and the world while developing students’ skills in oral presentation, writing, and critical analysis. Candidates will be asked to demonstrate a firm grounding in historic concepts and facts, pertaining to one or more of the following fields: finance, management, industrial expansion, labor relations, trade, government regulation, and theories of capitalism. Candidates must be able to contrast past practices with current developments. University-specific training in the pedagogy of Writing Across the Curriculum may be required of hires.
Minimum Qualifications: A master’s degree required. A doctorate or terminal degree is preferred. The candidate should be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching undergraduates, particularly sophomores and first year students. ABDs with relevant teaching experience will be considered.
