Position Details

Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) seeks a non-tenure track lecturer to teach two undergraduate courses in speech communications (COMM 203) in each of the fall and spring semesters.  The appointee will be expected to attend occasional meetings and to hold regular office hours.  The anticipated start date is the Fall 2013 semester. Texas A&M University at Galveston is the Marine and Maritime Branch of Texas A&M University.  The Department of General Academics encompasses a variety of disciplines, ranging from Anthropology to Spanish.

A branch campus of Texas A&M University (in College Station), the Galveston campus functions much like a school or college within the larger university, to deliver ocean-oriented education, research, and public service in a variety of marine/maritime programs.  It is the only state maritime training academy located on the Gulf of Mexico.  Instructional programs are delivered primarily at the 130-acre Mitchell Campus on Pelican Island, near the mouth of Galveston Bay.  Texas A&M University at Galveston is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Texas A&M University at Galveston has approximately 125 full-time Faculty members and an undergraduate enrollment of about 2,000 students and 7,100 graduate students.  The Department of General Academics employs 28 full-time and 19 part-time faculty members.  It offers courses that support nine marine-related majors and administers a BA in Maritime Studies.  There are no graduate-level teaching opportunities for the Faculty of General Academics, and much of the teaching load is in service courses, often lower-division. A variety of disciplines are represented by the Department’s Faculty members, including anthropology, archeology, classics, communications, English, history, kinesiology, maritime studies, mathematics, philosophy, political science, psychology, and Spanish.
