The Department offers a BS in Early Childhood Education, an interdisciplinary BA program in Liberal Arts for working adults, and an MA in the Study of the Americas.

Lecturers participate as full faculty members of the Department, the College, and the University. Service expectations will include serving on committees and contributing to projects and programs, particularly those related to teaching and learning. In their fifth year, Lecturers are eligible for a Certificate of Continuous Employment.


A Bachelor’s degree, with specialization in Early Childhood Math, Science, and/or Music, is required at the time of application. Preference will be given to candidates with graduate degrees and experience in teacher education.
