    The Department of Historical & Political Studies (HAPS) at Arcadia University, invites applications for a part-time lecturer to teach two courses in the fall of 2018, specifically Global Environmental Politics (on Monday/Wednesday/Friday late mornings) and Global Governance & International Organizations (on Tuesday/Thursday early afternoons).


    Arcadia’s College of Arts and Sciences offers programs in science, technology, and math; humanities; visual and performing arts; communications; and historical and political studies. These programs prepare students for careers that contribute to a global society and allow students to exhibit, perform, and publish on campus through a variety of campus media outlets, including an art gallery, a literary magazine, and an online journal.


    Arcadia University is a top-ranked private university in Greater Philadelphia and promises a distinctly global, integrative, and personal learning experience that prepares students to contribute and lead in a diverse and dynamic world. A national leader in study abroad and international education, Arcadia has been named #1 in undergraduate study abroad participation by the Institute of International Education’s Open Doors Report for the past seven years. Approximately 3,900 students attend Arcadia, and the University’s 2,500 undergraduate students choose from more than 65 fields of study.

    Arcadia University seeks candidates of diverse cultural backgrounds and abilities. Arcadia University encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply. All offers of employment are conditional based on successful completion of a background check.



    The ideal candidate would be able to teach both courses, but applications for teaching one of these courses will be considered. It is also likely that two courses will be available to teach in spring 2019, which could reflect the candidate's area of expertise, depending on department need and teaching effectiveness.


    A Ph.D. by September 2018 is preferred, as is a demonstrated excellence in and commitment to teaching. Research experience and a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion are highly desirable. We welcome candidates with training in History, Political Science, Anthropology, and other related disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields. HAPS is an inter-disciplinary department with three undergraduate majors (History; International Studies; Politics, Government & Law) and one Master's program (International Peace and Conflict Resolution), and most faculty members in HAPS teach in multiple areas of the department as per their areas of expertise.
