To see a listing of specific pools, go to the following link: http://art.wayne.edu/facultypt.php

An applicant may specify which existing courses the applicant is qualified to teach. The department is not seeking proposals for new courses.

Part-time faculty generally teach one course and occasionally two courses per semester. In art and design a three-credit course can involve five and one-half contact hours per week. In art history and in seminars, a three-credit course can involve three contact hours per week. Part-time faculty are responsible for instructing students during the course hours, evaluating student work completed in the course, and holding office hours on a regular basis.

To be eligible for consideration, a candidate should possess a master’s degree in a field of specialization appropriate to the area of assignment. Candidates should submit a portfolio including the following: a letter of application (the letter of application must identify the specific hiring pool or pools being applied for), curriculum vitae, 20 images of art or design (where applicable) on a CD, 20 images of student works in art and design (where applicable) on a CD, and a short statement of teaching philosophy of not more than one page in length. Applicants who would like their materials returned after review should include a SASE. Wayne State University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.
