Tenure Track Faculty Position in French
The World Languages Department at Covenant College, an agency of the Presbyterian Church in America and an academically rigorous Christian college emphasizing the liberal arts in the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition, invites applications for a tenure-trac faculty position beginning July 1, 2023.
The candidate who fills this position will be expected to teach a wide range of courses at the undergraduate level in supporting the French major and program and the general education requirement for language.
A doctoral degree in French from a regionally accredited institution is preferred but we will consider a candidate with an M.A. degree. Preference will be given to candidates with a specialization in Linguistics and/or a second World Language. The World Languages department offers a major in French and Spanish, as well as courses in German, American Sign Language, and Arabic; and cooperates closely with the history, politics, and international studies department in offering an International Studies major, as well as providing courses to satisfy the general education requirements of the college. A desirable candidate will be an excellent teacher, will be enthusiastic about actively connecting his or her teaching to the community of Francophones in the Chattanooga area, will be dedicated to developing further as a Christian scholar and will be enthusiastic about active participation in the larger community of Christian scholars at the college. Rank and compensation will be commensurate with experience.
