Public History and Heritage--Associate or Full Professor
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||North Carolina, United States|
NC State University invites applications for an Associate or Full Professor position in Public History and Heritage beginning August 2014. Field of specialization is open, but the position is integral to the department’s new doctoral program in Public History. The department seeks outstanding individuals who are active researchers and who have notable applied experience in Public History, who are committed to innovative pedagogy and curriculum development, and who enjoy close mentoring of students. In addition to teaching graduate Public History courses and advising dissertation work, the successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses in his/her specialization.
About the Department: The History Department is a diverse group of scholars covering many areas of specialization. We pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. We offer small classes that allow a great deal of individual attention. In addition, our faculty advisors offer close contact and personal attention to each student. The History major is a place to get a “small college” education in a big state university.
The department of twenty-nine professors has about three hundred fifty majors in three undergraduate programs—the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts with a Teacher Education Concentration, and the Bachelor of Sciences. All programs offer a great deal of student choice in courses and electives, allowing the pursuit of either a broad educational experience or a focused study. Our 80 student graduate program offers two distinct degrees: the M.A. in History and the M.A. in Public History. However, both degree programs require a strong foundation in traditional history.
