Teaching Associate - Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre at Coastal Carolina University is accepting applications for a pool of Teaching Associates (part-time adjunct faculty) to teach introductory and undergraduate course offerings for the program beginning in August 2022. While the ad is open to any specialization within the field of study, applicants able to teach in the areas of Acting, Sound Design, Theatre Technology, Movement and Dance are of particular interest. To be considered, candidates must have a terminal degree in a relevant subject area (M.F.A.). Prior professional theatrical experience and prior teaching experience are preferred.

The Department offers B.F.A. degrees (audition only) in Musical Theatre, Acting, Physical Theatre, and Design and Production, as well as a B.A. degree in Theatre. Located in Conway, South Carolina, just 9 miles from Myrtle Beach, this highly collaborative and rigorous department maintains an ambitious production season, in addition to new works and staged readings in our Maymester series to connect students with working professionals. Department faculty maintain professional careers in their respective disciplines and assist students in seeking summer employment. Senior B.F.A. Students participate in a New York Showcase for industry professionals, Physical Theatre students spend a year abroad in Italy, and Coastal Carolina University offers many other study-abroad opportunities for students and faculty.
