Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Faculty Los Angeles, California

The Annenberg School of Journalism at the University of Southern California seeks an adjunct instructor, to teach “JOUR 201: Culture of Journalism: Past, Present, Future,” in Fall 2021.

JOUR 201 covers a history of journalism for undergraduates. It asks the questions: Who made news, who covered it, and why were certain communities, events and movements covered? Why were others not the object of media coverage? Who packaged the news and what impact did that have on the way information was relayed?

Applicants should have at least three years’ experience working in a related field. Teaching experience is desirable. A strong candidate demonstrates a thoughtful understanding of current issues in the industry, including equity and inclusion in journalism.

Applicants should send a letter describing their background, interests and areas of expertise, and an up-to-date resume or curriculum vitae through USC’s job site.

Required Documents:

A cover letter describing your experience and background and an updated CV/ resume. Our system will allow you to add additional documentation by clicking the “upload” button in the same section where you attach your resume.
