The successful candidate will teach four courses each Fall and Spring semester in our undergraduate and/or graduate programs and will provide service to the Department and its students.

About the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media and Seton Hall University:
Launching in Fall 2023, the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media will bring together programs in education; human services; digital and visual media and design; the performing arts; arts and society; and communication. The College is envisioned to deliver strong disciplinary preparation and explore new areas to prepare students to excel in the fields of education, human services, communication and the arts and more.
Nested within the new College, the establishment of the School of Communication, Media, and the Arts, as well as the School of Education and Human Services, will provide foundations to enhance existing strengths and missions, while sharing resources and unifying the faculty across both areas in the exploration, development, and implementation of significant programmatic creation, modification, evaluation, and expansion. Organizationally, both Schools will complement the overarching College unit, and are poised to offer increased specification and tremendous opportunity.
In addition, the faculty of the Department of Communication and the Arts pledges unwavering solidarity with our administrators, staff, alumni, students, families, and all our neighboring communities, in speaking and standing firmly against racism. As educators for Newark’s diocesan Catholic university, it is our moral duty to advance social justice, champion diversity, and work toward an anti-racist future, free of violence and oppression. We commit to addressing systemic inequality and strife by engaging students, colleagues, and the University community through active collaboration to improve diversity and inclusion across courses, programs, and the College.
