The Department of English, Comparative Literature and Linguistics plays a major role in contributing to the general education experiences of students in humanities and the social sciences while also serving more than 500 majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Most courses are three-units per semester, typically offered in a lecture-discussion mode.

Areas of Specialization
We are seeking highly motivated, well-organized individuals to supervise language arts student-teachers in the field. Additionally, we are seeking an instructor to teach the student-teaching English methods class.
Candidates must have a master’s degree in English or related field and a California secondary teaching credential. Candidates must be familiar with the Common Core. Preference will be given to candidates with experience mentoring, supervising, or teaching student-teachers in Orange County and the surrounding area. An ability to work effectively with a broad mix of student ages and students from culturally diverse backgrounds is also highly desirable.
A background check (including a criminal records check) must be completed satisfactorily before any candidate can be offered a position with the CSU. Failure to satisfactorily complete the background check may affect application status of applicants or continued employment of current CSU employees who apply for the position.
The needs for part-time faculty are greatest in the Fall and Spring semesters. The fall term begins in late August and ends in mid-December; the spring term runs from the beginning of February through the end of May. Supervisors may be required to conduct observations between Fall and Spring semesters and in late May and June.
Appointment and Salary
All part-time faculty appointments are made as Lecturers, under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the CSU system and the California Faculty Association.
