CUNY Adjunct Lecturer - Humanities: Public Speaking in Brooklyn, New York


New York City College of Technology (City Tech) of the City University of New York (CUNY) is a comprehensive college of over 17,000 students in downtown Brooklyn, offering associate and baccalaureate degree in technology and health related degree programs, other career-oriented degrees and liberal arts transfer degrees in its Schools of Arts and Sciences, Technology and Design, and Professional Studies. We are the largest public college of technology in New York State and exceptional in that we go beyond traditional class offerings to create a high-tech, hands-on educational experience for our students, to prepare them for a rapidly changing world. For the last five years City Tech has been among the leaders in the diversity of the students it serves among all Comprehensive Colleges/Bachelor’s (North) in the annual survey by U.S. News and World Report. Students and faculty are from more than 120 countries and speak more than 85 languages, with many students the first in their families to attend college.

The Humanities Department maintains a unique position within our college of technology. The department offers courses in art history, communication, foreign language, music and theatre, providing students with laboratories for creative expression, cultural and historical understanding, and practical tool sets for work and living. These enriching competencies help students appreciate multiple perspectives and synthesize ideas, ultimately laying the groundwork for a sense of possibility and a clearer recognition of an individual's place in society.

Our courses complement the study of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and human services. The integration of the arts and communication studies into a general education curriculum produces demonstrably positive results in academic performance. By engaging with the humanities, students become more deeply invested in learning, cultivate a sensitivity to cultural diversity, think more critically and develop superior problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills.

Beyond the classroom, our courses prepare students for a diverse and fast-changing job market, where multilingualism, effective communications skills and advocacy of human and environmental concerns have become preeminent. The practice and appreciation of the visual and performing arts and concrete applications not only in the STEM disciplines but also in a range of real-world careers.
