Adjunct Teaching Faculty

From time to time the College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina hires qualified part-time (adjunct) faculty to enrich its MSW, BSW and social work minor programs. Minimum qualifications are a master's degree in social work from a CSWE-accredited program, plus two years of post-degree social work experience to be eligible to teach practice courses. These appointments are on a course-by-course basis and the College’s needs change from semester to semester (fall, spring, and summer terms).

All BSW and social work minor courses and most MSW courses are offered on the USC Columbia campus and include weekday and evening class meeting times. MSW courses are also offered on Saturdays in Columbia and at the Lowcountry Graduate Center in North Charleston and at the University Center in Greenville. Some courses may be taught on-line or with a “hybrid” (mixed) on-line/traditional delivery format.

The application letter should include geographic preferences and general availability (i.e., weekdays and/or evenings and/or Saturdays). Adjunct teaching faculty applicants are required to submit an official copy of their transcripts for our files to comply with accreditation standards.

Field Liaisons

The College of Social Work also hires part-time (adjunct) faculty to serve as field liaisons for students placed at field practicum sites in various locations across the state and in neighboring areas in Georgia and North Carolina. Field liaisons visit interns during regular working hours at their practicum settings, providing guidance to both students and field instructors. There are currently no field liaison positions available for hire.

Application Process for Both Part-time Positions

These position postings are continuous in order to develop a qualified pool of interested candidates. If your area of interest/expertise meets the programmatic needs of the College of Social Work, you will be contacted regarding specific opportunities. These needs change from semester to semester. If you should relocate or wish to remove your name from the pool you may do so by withdrawing your application.

How to Apply:
