I have a class with an adjunct professor who has a day-time job of a judge. When writing my essay in MLA format, do I put "Professor Judge _______ _______" or do I just put "Professor _______ ______"? Or something else?
Thanks in advance.
I am looking to be an adjunct professor in English. My GPA in my Master's program is not the best, it's only around a 3.0 Is it still possible for me to find an adjunct job? I have a lot of tutoring research experience, so would that help?
Thanks in advance.
I am planning to pursue my Master's and PhD studies, but I am worry after reading an article which predicted that a lot of jobs will disappear by 2030 and professor job was in the list, the writer saw that we would no longer need professors because of E-education and distance education etc., so I am worry now and I feel that after I take my PhD it will be valueless and I will not be able to find a job!
Hey. I'm a Philosophy major who's a junior in college. I have hopes to move on to grad school, earn my way up to a doctorate, and become a university philosophy professor. Since I'm about 2 years away from graduating and about a year away from applying to grad school, I've been thinking about places I'd like to get my Masters and Doctorate from after I graduate with my Bachelors here at Sam Houston State University.
I've been reading the "curriculum vitae" of many of my professors and I've noticed something. Not only did all of them go to different universities either between Bachelors degree and the Masters/Doctoral or between the Bachelors/Masters and the Doctoral, but the universities they moved to were in a different state altogether. I already know that in academia it's frowned upon to get all three of those degrees at the same place, but is there also some unspoken rule about it being bad even to get those degrees in the same state? I have a few options for grad school I'm considering, some out of state, but the one right now that I'm really looking towards is the University of Texas at Austin. However, that would mean that I got all of my college education in the same state.
So, how big is this stigma against getting all three degrees in the same state? I know that obviously having varied perspectives from different college settings is important, but if I were to get all of my degrees from the same state would that seriously hinder my prospects of getting decent college-level teaching jobs? I mean, I'm not looking to be a world-renown professor or anything, but I don't want to be forever stuck just filling the role of "adjunct professor" at community colleges either. Am I worrying too much about all of this, or do I really need to find an out-of-state university to go to for grad school? Could someone give me to advice and commentary on all of this?
I am considering a job as an adjunct college professor, and the salary information indicates that teachers are paid "semesterly" with a 3 hour lecture course getting about $2,000. Does that mean $2000 for the semester all together or per month of the semester? In order to make $10,000 over the semester would I have to teach 5 classes? How are adjunct faculty at colleges paid? Any other input is much appreciated. Thanks!
If you are a college professor/teacher do you have a small or a high chance of getting hired if your looking for a job? And do colleges/universities still accept college professors even if you are an adjunct professor currently?
For a long time, I've wanted to teach as an adjunct professor on a part-time basis. I'd like for someone with experience in this area to tell me, based on my description of my situation, whether this sounds like a realistic option for me.
I have an M.S. in Computer Engineering, and I've worked for five years as a full-time software engineer. I have no formal teaching experience. My goal to become an adjunct professor is more for personal fulfillment than for money or advancement, so I don't care about what it pays or whether the position is prestigious. However, since I intend to continue my full-time job, I would only be available for teaching night classes. If I got to pick, I would prefer to teach a class in programming or computer engineering.
So, does that sound reasonable? Or is there no demand for people in my circumstances?
I will be going back to school in the fall for my Masters in Fine Art. I would like to teach at the college level when I'm finished. I know plenty of professors who have enough professional experience to begin teaching with only a Bachelor's degree. I have worked in my field for over 10 years. How do you seek a professor job? It's not as if those types of jobs are posted. Would you contact the college directly and send a resume? Is there a place where these types of things are advertised? Can I start teaching while studying for my Masters?
I was wondering if you may have some insight that would clear things up for my family and I. My wife currently has her master and math and teaches as an adjunct math professor in two universitys. She's had trouble finding a full time job. She decided to go back for her cpa and obtain her ba in accounting. What type of job should she being looking for to gain some experince. Book keeping etc. Thanks for your time.
University of Phoenix even offers PhD degree. Anyone knows any one who actually offered a professor job with a PhD degree from University of Phoenix.
I have a BA in Theater, an MA in Theater and Film Studies, and a PhD in Drama – all from prestigious U.S. universities. This represents 9 years of study.
My areas of academic specialization are performance theory, history of directing, modern U.S. drama, and post-colonial 'deconstructed' feminist theatre.
However, the academic (i.e. Professor) jobs for this is slim. What job can I take while I wait for a professor job to open up?
So it seems that being an adjunct college professor is shrinking as a side job for most colleges, even at community colleges (well at least in New Jersey). Is there anyway I can teach college courses out of my home and grant college credits? I am sure my curriculum would need to be accredited sooooo do I sound crazy? I mean, big schools were small at one point (yeah?) just like most businesses and I am pretty sure school is just a really specialized business.
Any ideas or hints? I tried Google and got no answers so this might show that my question is silly to ask.
I have a bachelor of science in physics (double major physics AND secondary education) and a masters of art in education (science ed). As I understand it, you generally need at least a masters to get a job teaching at a college. I have a masters, but not in physics. Is it possible to be hired to teach intro physics courses? Is it possible to be hired to teach intro education courses? I have 5 years of public high school physics teaching experience.
How do you get your first job after college?
How do you make a decent living?
How difficult is it to achive a full time position?
I have a LOT of experience in those fields.Also,I happen to be in dire need of the job.So pleassse,HELP.=)
He's never been anything more than a third-year junior associate lawyer at a rinky dink civil rights firm and an adjunct professor in first-year constitutional law. What a joke!
If so, have you found any jobs and salaries that are compatible with your major and/or degree level? Are the results what you thought they would be, or has it been a rude awakening?
I am asking because I am thinking of pursuing an online masters degree so that I can be an online adjunct professor. I'm unable to go to a brick and mortar institution due to family obligations. I've had much job and salary advancement success with my online bachelors. Thanks very much for any light you can shed.
I was thinking after getting my masters in psychology, I'd like to teach as an adjunct professor for the experience and for resume-building before settling on a full-time secondary school position. Would this give me a good edge over competition and allow me to work where I desire? Also would this be considered beneficial if I chose to be a school counselor/advisor?
I really like ancient history also even mythology. It was the only subject I actually cared for in high school haha. I was also wandering cause I heard that history professors sometimes travel over the summer to dig sites I was wandering if that was true. I think it would be really cool to see some ancient ruins of any sorta ancient greece or aztec city. Thank you for your answers.
I want to get an MFA in Creative Writing and become a professor. I know the jobs are highly competitive and I'm willing to move if I have to. But what helps your chances? Getting published? Working as a TA? Cutting off an ear for them? What? Lol.
