Half of our international faculty teach Conversational English classes which are offered for Freshman and Sophomores. These classes provide a distinct chance to interact with students on a more personal level. Because these classes have an average of only 25 students, relationships are more easily established and exceptional conversational practice is more easily accessible.

Preparation time for each week lessons is kept minimal as teams work together and follow an established curriculum. Teachers are required to teach 18 hours of class time each week with two additional Office Hours being set aside for meeting with students. This leaves plenty of time for other professional and social endeavors.

We offer a variety of academic courses, briefly outlined below. Academic teachers prepare lectures and discussions for classes of 60 students on average, and multimedia classrooms are assigned for these courses. The full-time teaching load for academics is 12 class hours a week, providing ample time for preparation and meeting with students. Textbooks and other resources, including supervision, are provided.

Applicants with corresponding degrees, teaching experience or work experience in an academic course discipline will be considered for openings.
