TWC is the bridge between higher education and professional careers–leveraging all that Washington D.C. has to offer to provide dynamic, experiential learning opportunities to empower and motivate young people to become engaged global citizens.

Position Description

The Washington Center is seeking to hire an Adjunct Faculty member to teach Interest Group Politics starting Spring 2019.  Ideally, the course would draw upon and reflect the wide range of interest group activity in the Washington, D.C. arena.

All courses at TWC meet in person, one evening a week (Monday through Thursday), beginning at 6:30 p.m. and ending at 9:30 p.m.  The Fall and Spring semesters last 14 weeks, and the Summer term lasts 9 weeks.  Classes generally have 16-18 students and consist of mostly junior and senior level college students, both domestic and international. 

Adjunct Faculty appointments are on a semester-by-semester basis and usually for one section per semester, contingent upon enrollment. 

Required qualifications to teach include a Master’s Degree in an appropriate discipline.  Earned doctorate or appropriate terminal degree and relevant work experience preferred.  Teaching experience at the college level is highly preferred.  Applications are considered on a rolling basis.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV or resume, sample syllabi, and course evaluations (if available) to faculty@twc.edu
