Core Teaching Fellow, Mount St. Mary’s University (Emmitsburg, MD)

Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg Maryland is seeking to hire two full-time teaching fellows for its common, integrated, sequential interdisciplinary core curriculum. The positions will begin August 15, 2023. The fellowships will be a 1 year appointment, renewable for up to four years, contingent upon satisfactory evaluation.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: 

The teaching load will be 4-3.  Fellows will teach in the Mount’s First Year Symposium, the introductory course in the Mount’s core curriculum.  This course, which functions as students’ introduction to college level writing and research, draws on the reading of great authors to engage students in the questions, “What does it mean to be human?  What does it take to live significantly? And how are humans responsible to others?”  As part of the duties of teaching this course, instructors also serve as students’ academic advisors during the freshman year. 

The remaining load will be in one (or more) of the following courses in our common, sequential core: Origins of the West, Foundations of Philosophy, Atlantic Encounters: 1450-1850, Philosophy in the Modern Age, America in the World, Foundations of Theology, Encountering Christ, or Ethics and the Human Good.
