GENERAL EDUCATION (MUSIC) FACULTY POOL
University of Illinois at Chicago
Part-time beginning August 16, 2018
The School of Theater and Music at the University of Illinois at Chicago strives to respond to the interests of the student body across campus as well as meet the needs of its undergraduate students in applied music, jazz studies, and music business.
For the general students at UIC, we offer a set of courses that meet the campus’ General Education requirements. Currently, this includes courses in music appreciation, history of American popular music, history of jazz, music of Latin America, and music theory fundamentals. In addition to our seeking lecturers for these courses indicated, we invite individuals to submit ideas for new music courses for undergraduates enrolled at major urban university. Such proposals may include but are not limited to courses in: history of rock, hip-hop, music of the Indian subcontinent, and music and film. For a full listing of our current General Education courses, go to http://theatreandmusic.uic.edu/music-courses.
The Music Studies Program currently seeks qualified individuals for its Adjunct Lecturer pool. The specific courses involved may vary from semester to semester and openings to teach these courses develop on a periodic basis, depending on department teaching need.
Adjunct Lecturers are non-tenure track members of the faculty with limited term appointments, whose primary role is instructional with no obligations to perform research or service. Adjunct Lecturers who teach a course are compensated at a rate of $5,000 per course, with increases for large section courses greater than 90 students.
